Economic Crisis carries 6lb extra for winning over track and trip last time and the runner-up Manatee Bay re-opposes on better terms. Bunce only won a claimer at Redcar recently but can figure again along with the returning pair Gottcher and Gran Canaria Queen. The latter beat Beau Mistral over course and distance in August, but a chance is taken on RED CAPE in this. Ruth Carr's veteran has been in good form on the Polytrack, winning at Wolverhampton last month, and can take advantage of a lower mark back on this surface.
