Island Legend has won three times over C&D and is back on a winning mark but just can't find enough to get his head back in front but another track and trip winner, Picansort, is tempting as he looks likely to be winning again soon on the evidence of his recent form at Lingfield. Liberal Lady is another threatening a return to the winner's enclosure and she had Black Baccara behind when runner-up here last time, but INGLEBY STAR could upset his more fancied rivals. He had no chance on his recent return after his saddle slipped but can race off a lower mark than when scoring at Musselburgh in September and he looks sure to thereabouts at the finish.
