Outlaw Torn scored at Wolverhampton last time but his only win on Turf so far came off a much lower mark. RISE TO GLORY also won on the Polytrack recently but he's been successful off higher marks on this surface before and gets the token vote. Keep It Dark and Rio Cobolo have been competing at Southwell and both have the past form to figure but Catterick winner Hoppy's Flyer makes more appeal on her return to action. Nant Saeson's victories came on the all-weather and 6f winner Celestial Dawn looks a bigger threat trying this longer trip for only the second time.
