Martin Todhunter's horses are running well but the ground may be too lively for recent Wetherby winner Allanard. Course specialist Mohi Rahrere hasn't been firing while The Panama Kid is still paying the price for his double at Catterick and Doncaster at the start of the year. Dreams Of Milan is still chasing a first win over fences and also looks high enough in the weights. YOU KNOW YOURSELF gets his favoured ground for the first time in a long while and looks handicapped to take advantage being 5lb lower than when scoring at Kelso last year. Mandarin Sunset tries 3m for the first time but is progressive and could go well if lasting home.
