A low-grade cavalry charge to end proceedings with SHERIFF OF NAWTON getting a tentative vote. He opened his account over 7f at Catterick last week and may well defy a penalty with this extra distance looking likely to suit. Other lightly-raced types with a chance of getting involved include Bearskin, Sicilian Bay and Trinity Star, while it was soft ground when Where's Tiger finished third at Newcastle last month and he can also figure. Incurs Four Faults was well supported last week despite a massive raise in the weights for an earlier second at Southwell but he could only manage fourth.
