Mandalay King steps up in class and trip as he bids for a hat-trick under a penalty and Red Cape looks to have stronger claims. He has the beating of Jarrow on earlier form at Thirsk. Hinton Admiral has been placed twice since scoring at Pontefract off a 5lb lower mark, while Sunrise Safari is reunited with winning partner Lee Topliss and could figure.
