Roy's Legacy can race off a much lower mark on Turf and nearly took advantage when going close at Musselburgh. SPRING BIRD finished behind the latter on that occasion but has since won at Southwell. Anna Hesketh's allowance negates a penalty and Dandy Nicholl's charge is fancied to go in again. Tadalavil won at Musselburgh in between his more usual modest efforts while Captain Scooby's tumble down the weights finally resulted in a better showing at Wolverhampton last time. Two Turtle Doves won last year's renewal off a similar mark and she may also get involved.
