The draw could play a part in this with 16 runners due to face the starter. The ground may be too soft for Orbit The Moon and Broctune Papa Gio but course and distance winner Day Of The Eagle shouldn't be inconvenienced by conditions. Shamaheart is only 2lb higher than when scoring at Musselburgh but doesn't always find a lot off the bridle and the handicapper refuses to relinquish his grip on veteran Barney McGrew. The unexposed Tiger Jim has possibilities and likewise Dutch Descent, but ALMANACK's fourth at Redcar was his best effort so far on Turf and he can take advantage of a draw against the far rail.
