There aren't that many frequent winners in this line-up and CITIZENSHIP may be the answer ahead of Rangefinder and Wicked Daze amongst a host of dangers. The selection didn't fare that badly in the Lanark Silver Bell on his reappearance and was entitled to have needed his first run of the season. He has been dropped by a pound since which still leaves him on a 10lb higher mark than his sole handicap success and he has to prove his stamina for this trip but he will handle this softer ground. Rangefinder and Wicked Daze hail from yards that are enjoying decent spells but the former has been a little disappointing this season and needs to bounce back whereas the latter is running well and will surely double his career turf tally sooner rather than later. Bollin Judith appeals as the type that should have more to offer this season whilst Red Kestrel has dropped to a very handy mark in a race where few can be ruled out with confidence; Citizenship can only be a hopeful choice.
