Twice a winner at Kempton, the progressive DASHWOOD has yet to race on turf. However, he should handle the surface and Giles Bravery's charge is taken to continue his improvement after running out a clear winner last time. Absa Lutte dead-heated over 5f here last month and winning partner Keiren Fallon is back on board, while veteran Beckermet won for the first time since 2007 when scoring on a slower surface at Ayr last week. Rain softened ground also saw Gracie's Games get the better of Bermondsey Bob at Chepstow on Monday, but Windsor winner Nubar Boy was a disappointing favourite last time.
