This is little better than a seller. Indeed, a number of these competed at that level last time. Skidby Mill is only a couple of pounds higher than when successful over course and distance last month but has something to find with both Annes Rocket and Warbond on earlier running. Jimmy Fox's mare ran well again last time and has to go on the short-list but we'll take a chance on the lightly-raced Wolverhampton winner TRUE SPIRIT as he should stay this mile now he's matured a little. Carrera, just beaten at big odds here last time, looks the pick of the remainder.
