LIGHT FROM MARS has been in fine form at Wolverhampton. He went close to following up last month's win when only beaten a head last time and can race off the same mark here. Hurricane Spirit was placed in a seller on his latest start but C&D winner Daruband makes more appeal while Zing Wing's three victories to date have all been over 7f. Feelthedifference still looks a shade high in the weights and is likely to find a couple too good in this.
