Locked Inthepocket should go well here despite sharing top weight with Mitchell's Way, who will struggle to reverse Carlisle running with My Idea on 5lb worse terms. Lillioftheballet was well beaten when tried over 2m5f at Perth in July but has done well over shorter lately, winning at Market Rasen before a close-up third at Kelso. She's preferred to Huntingdon third Father Shine, who may not enjoy the ground, and the one-paced Farm Pixie. ACORDINGTOSCRIPT will have needed his fourth at Kelso and was run off his feet over that shorter trip but he looked a progressive sort at Ayr at the start of the year and this could be his chance to get off the mark.
