Sommersturm is up 5lb for his recent win at Lingfield and that could scupper his chances but Time Square is a winner without a penalty having won an apprentice's race here a week ago. Spirit Of Gondree could be involved once again while the likes of Amana, Confirmed and Sovento have all tumbled down the weights. However, TINKERBELL WILL finished ahead of a few of these when runner-up to Sweet Liberta over track and trip last time and she gets the vote to confirm running and go one better.
