Dr Finley has won three times on Turf but never in 16 starts on the all-weather. Staying hurdler Illegale will have found 1m4f too sharp here a couple of weeks ago but is a very infrequent winner and though Dance did a bit better here on the same day she was beaten six lengths into second and her earlier form is very moderate. AZABITMOUR has had a chequered career but was having his first start over this trip when narrowly beaten by Newtown Cross here on Thursday. He's actually on a 2lb lower mark and Hayley Turner can steer him to his first success. Galiotto was beaten in a Lingfield seller on Friday but this is no better and the hurdler Descaro is no forlorn hope, though he's only run on the all-weather twice in a long career.
