Avon Breeze has gone back up in the weights for a couple of recent placed efforts and has done all her winning over 5f so far. Polski Max has slipped down the handicap but would prefer soft ground while Bop It still looks in the grip of the handicapper. LINE OF REASON was hampered when starting favourite at York on Saturday and never recovered. He won off a 5lb higher mark last year and Paul Midgley's charge should go close today with normal luck in-running.
