MAJURO was caught close home at Wolverhampton on Wednesday with Faithful Ruler well beaten. Charles Smith's charge beat Divine Rule when scoring at this track earlier and is worth sticking with. Both of Bold Marc's all-weather victories came on the Fibresand though he's been placed on Polytrack before while Daniel Thomas has plenty to find on today's terms. Spin Again has yet to score over further than 7f but could make the frame along with the first-time blinkered Maz.
