Lance Betts takes 5lb off Trading, already a winner at Catterick and Newcastle this year and fourth over this trip at Musselburgh last time. But Duran Fentiman has got off the gelding to partner stable companion RYEDALE DANCER, who gets the vote. Tim Easterby's unexposed filly made much of the running when second to Mini's Destination on her handicap bow at Carlisle and may have improved enough to defy a small rise in the weights. Maggie Mey looked to be on the way back when fourth at Ripon and could be the danger as recent C&D second Fleurie Lover looks held by Trading on earlier form and Warwick winner Spirit Of Grace was well beaten at Haydock next time.
