Amazing Blue Sky made all at Beverley last time with Ailsa Craig well beaten and could go close again if allowed his own way up front. European Dream is slipping down the weights but without showing much improvement and today's ground is a worry for Law To Himself. Hakuna Matata can do better back over today's longer trip but a chance is taken on ONEOFAPEAR. He's not the most consistent but his comeback fourth at Newcastle last month was one of his better efforts and he'll go close in this company with a repeat.
