The majority of these haven't raced on Turf for a very long time. Minority Interest made his debut at Sandown but has been confined to Polytrack subsequently and won over 1m2f here last month where he made most of the running. He's only 1lb higher so will take some pegging back though THE YANK is taken to do so. Tony Carroll's charge showed potential over 1m4f at Kempton in March but had little chance when dropped back to 1m1f at Wolverhampton though he started favourite. He can gain his first success though his trainer is also represented by Mr Lando, who has been hurdling since a good run at Kempton in February. Lindsay's Dream has never won on the Flat but has scored three times over hurdles including at Plumpton in March. She couldn't go much lower in the weights and should be considered along with El Libertador, a very consistent performer though still a maiden on Turf.
