A couple of these are clear of the rest on official figures. POYLE VINNIE went close over track and trip last month but disappointed when well beaten in third at Wolverhampton last time. He's given another chance back at this track as his chief rival, Dawn Catcher, has shown her best form over 5f so far including a recent second at Ffos Las. The remainder will do well to figure on today's terms unless Twist And Twirl shows a big improvement on her latest second at Lingfield as the likes of Stoneacre Hull and Daneglow look thoroughly exposed.
