Ace Of Spies is favoured by the weights and had Apache Ridge behind when winning at Southwell last time. The downside is that he has yet to win on Polytrack so is worth taking on with SUPER FRANK. A multiple winner here, John Akehurst's charge ended a long losing run when scoring over C&D recently and this looks a good opportunity to follow-up. Waterloo Dock's three wins to date were all at this track and he will have come on for a recent outing while Goodbye Cash is not without a chance.
