MUQAAWEL will likely start a short price for this. He made a winning start over today's trip at Leicester last month and today's opposition have some catching up to do to figure. That includes Ripon winner Jersey Bull, who finished last dropped back to 5f at Beverley last time. Divine Law may improve past him today as he ran his best race to date when third at Salisbury but Dragline has shown nothing so far.
