MAOI CHINN TIRE has suddenly produced a form surge, landing two Nottingham 1m6f handicaps on successive days this week, even more impressively second time up. The double penalty makes life tougher but the Candlish inmate is hard to resist on the back of those victories under forecast conditions. Hot Spice shaped nicely on reappearance after a six-month absence and should come on for the run and looks the prime threat although he remains unproven over the trip. Rockabilly Riot, yet to win on the level, has place claims along with Danceintothelight. Indeed, the latter could be very interesting if ready after an absence.
