Danziger's winning run came to an end over 5f at Wolverhampton last week but Jamie Spencer takes over the reins as he returns to this longer trip. Catalinas Diamond steps up a grade after scoring here last time but Bubbly Ballerina is on a winning mark if back to her best and has claims. The same comment applies to MOTHER JONES and, having posted a better effort at this track on her latest start, David Evans' mare gets the vote racing off an 8lb lower mark than when scoring at Wolverhampton in November.
