If taking his chance after a nice score at Wolverhampton on Monday then CONRY looks the leading player. A winner when 11lb better off than when running on turf the chances are that he is still ahead of the handicapper under a penalty on a course that he should love. Milton Of Campsie was only just held on soft ground at Nottingham from a similar rating last time but while he has a chance he has it to prove on this surface. Charles Parnell likes it at this track and ran better than the bare result suggests last time at Wolverhampton while Dubai Hill's is probably weighted to get the better of the last mentioned after the pair met in October.
