Sir Mark Prescott is second to none when it comes to placing his horses to run up a sequence and LUCK OF THE DRAW's winning run has already begun. Twice successful over middle-distances at Southwell in the last week, he handles Polytrack and a 6lb penalty is unlikely to prevent him landing his hat trick. Hibba is the least exposed of today's opposition and makes his handicap debut for new connections after finishing third over 1m4f at Kempton last time while Active Asset and Burnbrake both scored at the same track on their latest starts and could figure.
