ULTIMATE WARRIOR will start a short-price in this company. He's well clear of today's rivals at the weights and arrives on the back of a close-up second to Big Kenny over track and trip last week. It's difficult to find any form worth a mention amongst the remainder. Previous Acclaim finished closer at Southwell on her penultimate start and has an advantage on today's terms with Polar Express and Lucky Dottie, but none of them can be recommended with any confidence.
