Not the easiest of races but Winter Hill can go well providing first-time blinkers have the desired effect. Raffinn was staying on well over 7f at Wolverhampton and the longer trip will suit while Bapak Pintar has been finding 1m2f too far and should do better back over this trip. City Dazzler ran his best race to date at Bath last time and Maccabees produced a couple of decent efforts last season. THECORNISHCOCKNEY has a temperament problem but this might just be the day that he puts it all together and his run in a Listed event at Salisbury last year is comfortably the best form on offer.
