Spaceman went close at Huntingdon last month while Is It Me ran his best race for a while when third at Stratford on Saturday. Earcomesthedream is a previous C&D winner but is on a long losing run and hasn't got anywhere near in any of his recent runs. Sulpius may need this but The Composer had a pipe-opener at Newton Abbot last month and Illegale is better than she showed over a shorter trip here last time. Off a 3lb lower mark, last week's C&D second Drummers Drumming has to go close if in the same mood but we're prepared to give another chance to KOWLOON. He appeared to resent a pair of blinkers at Exeter last week and that run is best ignored. A repeat of an earlier second to subsequent scorer Velator at Taunton would probably suffice here.
