Three times a winner on Polytrack over today's trip, OCEAN OF PEACE rates no more than a speculative selection in a difficult race to solve. He's 5lb higher than his latest victory but a close-up second at Kempton last time suggests Martin Bosley's charge can go in again off today's mark. Mr Maximas has been in good form at Wolverhampton and has claims, while Big Sur is not without a chance on his return to action. I'Lldoit may also appreciate the shorter trip and Lytham is back on a winning mark and shouldn't be ignored.
