All can be given some sort of chance in a tightly-knit handicap. Pull The Plug, unbeaten at two, will be all the better for a Newmarket reappearance and could well be a major improver with similar comments levelled at Online Alexander. However, MONEY TEAM landed a Class 5 Beverley sprint in the style of one on the upgrade on his first run of the campaign having showed useful juvenile form. David Barron can be guaranteed to exploit his very workable mark. Godolphin raider, Gilmer, and Crisis Averted are also of interest in a decent contest.
