Paphos is back on the same mark as when scoring over C&D in August and could figure while Glastonberry went close here last time. He had earlier beaten LUCKY MARK over 6f at this track but the latter re-opposes on better terms today having since scored over track and trip with Shaunas Spirit back in third. Blue Deer popped-up at Kempton in October and remains on a winning mark compared to his best form while Amosite ran well at a big price at Wolverhampton last time and could prove best of the rest.
