Toymaker's winning run came to an end off today's mark at Haydock last time, albeit in better company than this, while Mahadee was also well beaten on his latest start having won a seller over C&D before that. Shadowtime is another recent winner who came up short off a higher mark last time and Multi Bene has gone up another 5lb for finishing second at Bath. DOLPHIN ROCK has a 3lb rise to contend with having landed a gamble over track and trip recently when Cono Zur finished back in seventh. Brian Ellison's charge looks capable of going in again in as he's won off higher marks in the past.
