FRANKLINO was a surprise winner over 2m4f here two weeks ago but that was only his third start for Chris Gordon and he's always had ability. He may have been freshened up by his new surroundings and can get the better of Bold Raider, who won over the trip at Newton Abbot last month but was then beaten at Uttoxeter and has gone up a further 2lb since. Doctor Ric won over fences here last time but races off an 11lb higher mark over hurdles and Ffos Las runner-up Thomas Bell is 3lb out of the handicap.
