This looks like a match between Kris Spin and SILSOL. The former is a decent stayer who has already finished out of the first two once in seven starts over timber but the latter receives 9lb, taking into account Harry Derham's claim, and may just have the legs on his market rivals over this intermediate distance having won over 2m4f at Ayr on his latest start. The exposed Master Todd has plenty to find on these terms while none of the remainder have shown much so far.
