SINGEUR won this last year off a 2lb higher mark with Oldjoesaid second. He looked to be coming to the boil nicely at Pontefract when runner-up to Another Wise Kid and, weighted to reverse that form here, gets the nod as the draw has been kind to him again. Jack Luey won at Redcar in May and followed up with a good third at Newcastle. He shouldn't be far away while Chunky Diamond could figure if recapturing his best. Lucky Numbers, Silvanus and Rylee Mooch also warrant a second look but a low draw will be difficult to overcome unless the ground turns soft.
