Six Of Clubs was all out to win by the narrowest of margins at Wolverhampton three weeks ago and a 3lb rise may be enough to prevent a follow-up. Court Wing will have come on for his reappearance and a first try at 2m and looks to have every chance but TROJAN GIFT makes more appeal. He finished third over 1m6f here on his Fibresand debut and, though having something to prove over this longer trip, Julie Camacho's charge has scope for improvement on only his eighth start. Both Bold Adventure and Dot's Delight have a bit to find with the leading contenders.
