Plenty of these are open to improvement in a wide-open contest. The returning Homage makes more appeal than Caramack as that pair make their handicap debuts while Beverley winner Mitchell looks capable of better this year. Gravitational finished runner-up on his reappearance at Leicester but COUNTRYMAN's recent fifth in a stronger race at Ascot looks superior form and Hughie Morrison's charge gets the nod dropping back a furlong. Lionheart disappointed when stepped up to 1m1f at Epsom and may do better back over today's trip while Bondesire is another to consider having gone close at Pontefract on her return to action.
