Woolston Ferry finished runner-up at Wolverhampton last month with KNOW NO FEAR a couple of lengths behind. However, he's not got the best of the draw today and as the latter is better off at the weights with Leonna Mayor's claim taken into account, Alastair Lidderdale's charge can reverse the form. Hecton Lad was third over C&D in June, but hasn't raced since an outing at Deauville in the same month, while Dichoh scored here on his penultimate start but never threatened off a 6lb higher mark last time. Spinning Ridge could prove best of the remainder.
