IN FOCUS is penalised after making all at Catterick last week. But nothing looked like catching him on that occasion and the hat-trick beckons for Alan Swinbank's colt. Alquimia ran well in a classified event at Newcastle recently but is 8lb higher than her handicap win at Haydock in April. Green Zone took advantage of a slide down the weights to win at Pontefract a week ago but that was in soft ground while Baltic Fire went very close over track and trip in May and is another to consider.
