Multiple C&D winner Ingleby Arch has recorded his last couple of wins at this track in claimers and may be better at that level these days, while stablemate Ezra Church hasn't raced since May though he did win his maiden over track and trip in February. MOTTLEY CREWE is 5lb higher than his earlier C&D win at this track but arrives in good form and gets the vote having gone close over 5f here last time. Spitfire is a rare winner but a good run from Rowan Spirit in the first race would boost the form of his latest third at this course, while Dickie Le Davoir is 14lb higher than his win here in March and Cape Of Storms is returning from a lay-off.
