RED LARKSPUR returned a cosy winner at Lingfield last time. She's up 5lb for that but today's opposition don't inspire much confidence and she 's worth sticking with. Lastkingofscotland has looked less of a threat since stepping up in grade and Street Power is getting no nearer despite slipping down the handicap. Pick A Little has separated a couple of poor efforts with a victory over track and trip and it's anybody's guess what to expect from him but Apollo D'Negro and Dream Catcher are good enough to figure on their return to action.
