Precision Strike has gone up only 4lb after landing a double on the Polytrack early this year and can figure back on this surface. Krupskaya posted a better effort at Newcastle last time and should also get involved off her current mark. MARCUS CAESAR showed his best form so far on his handicap debut at Catterick last time when finishing a close-up fourth. This longer trip should bring further improvement and he gets the nod. Marble Silver, War Lord and Sweet Vintage are others to note.
