Fairy Wing scored at Ffos Las in between a couple of distinctly modest efforts at this track. Dancing Maite remains out of form but Hellbender is not easily dismissed raised only 3lb for winning over track and trip a fortnight ago. ONLY TEN PER CENT has won three times over course and distance and having slipped down the weights this year, it could be his turn again today. Delores Rocket has decent claims of taking to the surface though Wolverhampton winner Big Storm Coming has been raised a further 4lb for finishing second at the same track last time.
