Carrie's Magic won a claimer here last month and should be in the firing-line once again, while Tadalavil is only 1lb higher than when winning in soft ground at Ayr last year but may need the rain to fall to get involved here. TOBY TYLER had the lightly-raced Midnight Dynamo behind when scoring over C&D last time and a 3lb higher mark might not be enough to prevent him from going in again. Needy McCredie has been in fine form at Carlisle and can also figure, while Blues Jazz has registered both his wins over C&D and is another to consider.
