SHEIKH THE REINS has recorded both wins to date over track and trip. Dropped in class after a third at Newmarket, he may come out best in what looks something of a lottery. Spirit Of Gondree won here before finishing tailed off at Wolverhampton and Global Leader landed a double at the latter track before making the frame at Musselburgh. Shifting Star beat Uprise here a fortnight ago and can figure while Light Rose, Galatian and Black Dave all have the past form to get involved.
