Hawkeyethenoo has the highest official rating of these and was running well on the all-weather over the winter without having much luck. He hasn't won since landing the Stewards' Cup at Goodwood in 2012 but has every chance of ending that run here. Annunciation was only beaten half-a-length at Pontefract last month but has more to do at the weights in this. The filly Mar Mar struggles to get her head in front while Rivellino is better on the Polytrack. Intibaah has a decent strike rate but, like Morache Music, might just need this. MASS RALLY needs things to go his way but has a fine turn of foot and will be all the better for his run at Doncaster. This looks a bit easier and he's worth another chance.
