Code Six stands out as he at least managed to finish somewhere near the winner when sixth in a blanket finish at Musselburgh last time. The speculative vote goes to COMPTON ALBION, however, as she ran well at a big price on her reappearance at Wolverhampton and has plenty of scope on her handicap debut. Aaranyow went close over today's trip at Kempton last month and Quality Art has slipped down the weights and posted a better effort last time. Divertimenti scored over track and trip earlier this season but is 7lb higher today while Aussie Blue is another with claims in what shapes up as something of a lottery.
