Come On Eileen is easily dismissed but the remaining quartet are not. Hat-trick-seeking Honkers Bonkers has won his last two starts over 7f from the front, but won't get his own way at the head of affairs here with Heresellie in the field. They could quite easily set the race up for the other two, but Fantasy Fry didn't look to relish this surface when runner-up here a fortnight ago and LOCAL DIKTATOR is preferred. He beat Honkers Bonkers over C&D last month and, re-opposing on better terms today, a similar outcome is expected.
