Coincidently won at Musselburgh when last at the track in September but Silverheels has the more recent form when winning an amateurs race on the all-weather at Deauville earlier this month. Myboyalfie is another returning from an absence but has the form on Turf to figure and the lightly-raced Appease has a shout from the bottom of the weights. MIA'S BOY is rare winner nowadays but has been competing in better handicaps than this over the winter and Chris Dwyer's veteran gets a speculative vote to return to form having slipped down the weights.
