Southwell winner Alaccordion ran well off a higher mark back at the same track last time but has been raised a further 5lb for finishing second. JACK ALBERT is just preferred given he found only one too good at Musselburgh last month and drops down a grade today. Spiekeroog has slipped down the weights since making the frame in a seller at Hexham in October and Iktiview finished third off a higher mark at Catterick at the end of last year. Solway Sam hasn't won since 2010 but is dropped in class and makes most appeal of the remainder.
