Ree's Rascal won last year's renewal and Nathan Alison's claim allows him to race off a lower mark this time. He should be in the mix along with Lord Ofthe Shadows, who has been placed over longer trips of late as he bids to put a long losing run behind him. NET WHIZZ is less exposed and though he returned a losing favourite at Lingfield on his reappearance he was only beaten a length and can make amends in this with Frankie picking up the ride. Scottish Glen should be better for his pipe-opener at Warwick and looks competitive off his current mark.
