Takealookatmenow won a claimer at Redcar in between a couple of poor efforts and is too unreliable to have much confidence in. Pitt Rivers won over track and trip when last seen here but that was back in 2011 and Sunraider takes a drop in class after failing to take advantage of a tumble down the weights in handicaps. PARADISE SPECTRE went close at Kempton in March and gets the vote here on that basis given Spread Boy has little chance on today's terms.
