Miami Gator popped up at 25/1 over track and trip last season so is not easily dismissed off a lower mark today. Rawaafed has finished a bit closer of late as he attempts to record that elusive first win but has a length to find with Ted's Brother on running over 7f at Doncaster a fortnight ago. The latter's previous efforts over today's longer trip don't boost confidence in his chances so a punt is taken on FINE ALTOMIS. He'll need a big improvement on his recent comeback at Newcastle but has slipped down the weights and it could be his turn again today.
