Lastkingsofscotland, Unlimited and ivory lace are the main protagonists in this open affair, with Lastkingsofscotland taken to score. Unlimited is very exposed, but is in good heart, having won at Wolverhampton, before running a sound race in defeat last time. He is still not badly treated and can hit the frame again. Ivory Lace had been out of form before making eye-catching late progress to reach a place on her latest start. A winner back in August, the veteran of the field can go well. Lastkingsofscotland was an emphatic winner of a seller here two outings ago, and ran well in defeat in a handicap recently. Clearly in good form, Lastkingsofscotland can return to winning form and rule here.
