DIAMOND VINE had Even Bolder behind when scoring over track and trip in January and went close again back at this track last time despite having to come wide with his run in the home straight. A bit more luck in-running today can see him back to winning ways. Dvinsky had an out of sorts Riflessione behind when fourth at Kempton before popping up at 25/1 at the same course last time, while Catalinas Diamond also returned a double figure price when finally opening her account over C&D in November. Rio Royale is better than his latest run suggests as he won over 7f here in October and looks best of the rest.
