One or two of the usual suspects in opposition and with a number of the likely favourites drawn high, it could be worth another look at PRIVATE OLLEY. Jon Akehurst's inmate can be forgiven a below par effort at Epsom as he did not handle the track but he has won here previously and will be staying on dourly at the death. Dvinsky needs an uncontested lead and is rather inclined to sulk when he does not get it. Elhamri continues to run well in defeat and would be dangerous if repeating his recent Wolverhampton effort. Green Velvet has a wretched draw and is not sure to stay six. Sherjawy seldom runs a bad race though the handicapper seems to have him in his grasp whilst Bellini Rose has her first run for Jeremy Gask having previously campaigned under the tutelage of Tom Dascombe.
