HURRICANE SPIRIT as been making hay in similar company recently and won his fourth claimer of the year when scoring over a mile here last time. He had Mr Knightley back in third on that occasion and just edges it at the weights on today's terms. Frognal has been in terrific form over 6f at Lingfield and stays today's extra furlong while Paradise Spectre has been placed in handicaps over track and trip of late and should also figure. Commanche has a bit to find on these terms and gets a 5lb claimer on board to help his cause.
