Secretinthepark made a winning start at Warwick in August and makes more appeal than Opt Out, who now looks high enough in the weights having landed a double over 6f in the same month. Cappadocia has also won a couple of handicaps over 6f at this track and Rich Forever scored at Newcastle before floundering in Listed company last time. DASHING DAVID failed to cope with the soft going in a Listed contest at Doncaster last Saturday but his previous close-up fourth at this track to the progressive Snowboarder is the best form on offer and he gets the nod.
