NUMERAL got up late to score over 6f here in September. The way he finished suggests today's extra furlong will suit and he gets the nod to follow up off a 4lb higher mark. Justbookie Dot Com was well beaten at Haydock last month but had been in fine form on the Polytrack at Wolverhampton before that and has solid claims, but this is tougher than the race Demoiselle Bond won here on her latest outing. One Cool Chick scored over 6f on her only start at this track and looks best of the rest.
