Foxy Music ended last season with a win at Nottingham where he beat Keep It Dark. The latter finished runner-up here on last week's reappearance with Pull The Pin, who was due to run at this track yesterday, back in sixth. Rambo Will won over track and trip in January and should make another bold bid only 2lb higher on his return, but SIR GEOFFREY makes more appeal. The latter has won twice at the track this year and can go in again back down in class after an outing at Wolverhampton.
