Native Falls was the surprise winner of a claimer at Redcar on Saturday and arrives here with a penalty but he's only had seven races and may be capable of making the step-up in grade. Proclamationofwar's only success came on Polytrack but he likes fast ground and Shane Gray's claim will be a bonus. TWIN APPEAL was having just his fifth start when scoring over the trip on fast ground at Musselburgh but couldn't quite make the transition to a higher level over an extra furlong there subsequently. Back over this trip in the right grade he looks the one to be on. We'll Shake Hands made all and battled on stoutly at Carlisle so a 4lb rise is unlikely to prevent another big run and he looks the main threat.
