Birdy Boy scored over track and trip earlier in the year but is 15lb higher for this. Mick Dundee and Minimee were both well beaten on their respective debuts at this venue but Polytrack winner Bertie Moon has every chance if taking to the surface. CODEBREAKER found only one too good over course and distance last season and will have come on for a recent return from a lay-off at Lingfield, where he failed to stay 1m4f. Hughie Morrison's charge is taken to break his duck in this.
