Light From Mars won this off a higher mark last year and, having gone close over 6f here last time, another bold bid is expected from him. BROCKLEBANK finished last in the 2013 running but arrives in much better form this time round. A repeat of his recent second to Alfred Hutchinson in a Class 2 race at Lingfield would see him bang there at the finish and he gets the nod. Bowstar beat Emkanaat a couple of lengths over track and trip last time and can figure again off a 4lb higher mark and Stonefield Flyer has the form over shorter trips to get involved if lasting home on his first attempt at 7f.
