This is really competitive affair with collateral form in abundance but it could pay to stick with ROBIN HOODS BAY. He reversed earlier form with Tinshu in similar company at Lingfield last time and that looks the strongest recent form on offer. George Guru is good enough at this level but unproven over today's longer trip while less than a length separated Spifer and Greylami over 1m3f here when the former came out best. Kaafel has a bit to find with the selection and both Shamir and Super Say will need their best on their first outings since December.
