The leading contenders are closely matched on collateral form. Graylyn Ruby never figured at Nottingham last time but had easily got the better of Dr Finley over track and trip earlier. The latter re-opposes on better terms today but also found EASTERN MAGIC too good at Doncaster last month. Andrew Hollinshead's charge has been raised only 3lb for that success and gets the vote to go in again. Soundbyte hasn't won since 2011 but finished closer at Kempton last time while Underwritten could bounce back at any time off his current mark. Sycophantic is another to note on his handicap bow.
