The veteran SANDWITH has a real affinity with this track and, as he's only 3lb higher than when gaining the latest of his victories here and his young rider can claim 5lb, he's taken to get back on the scoresheet. Lady Del Sol comfortably beat Lollypop Lady here before disappointing on quicker ground at Redcar. She should again take care of the runner-up and along with Sharp Shoes, who scored twice here in the spring of last year but hasn't won since, looks a threat. Ginger Ted invariably performs at a higher level and though he's been out of form recently this is a drop in grade and his trainer wouldn't send him here without good reason so he's definitely worth a market check.
