Chosen One is back in good form and looks sure to make a bold bid to defy his penalty for Sunday's victory at Pontefract though he does appear better over the minimum trip. Secret City wins his share but looks a bit high in the weights as does Needy McCredie, who is on her highest ever mark despite not winning for over a year. Another Citizen has been very busy and hasn't been running badly but this can go to INDIESLAD. Ann Duffield's charge has been racing over further but this is his best trip and he's slipped to a winnable mark.
