FROSTED GRAPE has landed two of four successes at this track and looks reasonably treated against modest opponents. The Pipe charge has contested better races the last twice and will appreciate the drop in grade. Cash Back has returned in good heart from a break with two decent efforts and will certainly be in the mix if repeating those efforts. He was partnered to his sole hurdling success by today's pilot. Dunbrody House has not completed for five races but can't be ruled out off this mark. His yard is in fine form and he could well have taken a hand in a couple of those races with a clear round. King Of Castile has each-way claims.
