Diman Waters wasn't at home on fast ground at Beverley last time and these are more his conditions. He had Style And Panache behind at Ayr and should confirm the form but Lucky Dan has completed a double on very fast going and might find this ground too testing with his penalty. Jamaican Bolt won first time back last season so a long absence shouldn't be a concern while Wicked Wilma last victory was in very testing conditions at Thirsk in August and she's just 2lb higher. FIRST IN COMMAND completed a hat-trick at Southwell in March and had a break before returning with two narrow defeats on Turf where he's been staying on strongly. Paul Hanagan is a positive booking and he can steer his mount to another success.
