Mappin Time's only victory of last year was in a division of this contest so he's not easily dismissed off a lower mark today. However, he finished a long way behind MISSISSIPPI when the latter was second at Doncaster three weeks ago and David Barron's charge gets the vote to go one better. Pea Shooter is looking to take advantage of a slide down the weights but Tango Sky arrives in better form after completing a double over 5f when successful at Hamilton last week. Waking Warrior was only beaten a length at Ascot recently and that form looks stronger than Go Go Green and Meandmyshadow's recent placed efforts.
