Dandy Nicholls runs three and if EWELL PLACE is allowed to take his chance after Saturday's excellent run behind Postscript at Haydock then he looks the one to be on as he's now dropped to a 22lb lower mark than when successful at Newbury a year ago. Running Reef is on a hat-trick after victories at Catterick and Musselburgh and he's very much on the upgrade so has to be a big threat. Lolita Lebron has a course and distance victory to her credit and has a chance providing there's no more rain and though Paramour weakened disappointingly when favourite at Carlisle that was over a mile and he's well handicapped at his best over this trip.
