Cyflymder makes more appeal than 7f winner Flavius Victor over today's trip and Lady Sylvia has a decent shout having finished third over track and trip on her first start since September. For Shia And Lula is hard to win with so Spin Again makes more appeal as he's been threatening a return to winning ways of late albeit in lesser company. MAFI scored over track and trip last week and, with an apprentice negating most of a 6lb penalty, Mark Hoad's charge is taken to follow up.
