HANNAHS TURN is much better on this surface than anywhere else. She's been upped 10lb for last month's victory here but she beat a subsequent winner by seven lengths, so that may not be enough to prevent Chris Dwyer's filly from going in again. Rambo Will has decent claims on his latest length defeat over course and distance and the veteran Rowe Park continues to slip down the weights. Different is one of the least exposed and not without a chance if handling the track, while R Woody could also go well off his current mark. David Nicholls has picked up both previous runnings of this and jockey bookings suggest Majestic Manannan is preferred to stablemate Come On Dave.
