Hard to to be confident about any of these. Grandad Mac's recent placed efforts have been over longer trips and If I Were A Boy has recorded his best form over shorter distances. SEDGWICK scored over today's trip at Doncaster back in May and racing off a lower mark here with Michael Murphy's claim taken into account, he gets the token vote. Phonic could get involved if forgiven his latest poor effort while Melodrama and Jalors are others to consider if producing their best.
