Dickie Le Davoir, Chookie Royale and Meandmyshadow are all recent winners on faster going. Mission Impossible scored over 5f here recently but couldn't cope with a 6lb penalty at Redcar last time while Fama Mac got his head in front in an amateurs race at Catterick last week and will find this tougher. NORTHERN BOLT also steps up a grade having scored in the testing ground at Hamilton last month but he's won off higher marks before and can follow-up now back to his best.
