Mrs Warren managed to land a poor race at Catterick before being beaten in a Polytrack handicap but this is her first foray into plating company and she should be kept on the right side. Paul Hanagan's presence on Global Icon suggests he's the pick of Michael Dods' pair and he's another having his first start in this lowly grade but Roland was beaten in a seller at Thirsk before finishing last in a handicap at Ayr. RED ART won a similar race over the course and distance in August and has subsequently run well in two class 4 handicaps so his overall form gives him the edge, despite having to concede weight all round.
