Mother Jones was well beaten here last week but is dropping back down to a more suitable grade while Parisian Pyramid finished closer at this track on Saturday though that was over 7f. Redcar winner HALF A CROWN was beaten a length off today's mark at Wolverhampton last time and a similar effort should see him bang there at the finish. Hoover finished second over 7f here last week and could get involved along with fellow C&D winner Dancing Welcome.
