Muftarres scored on the Polytrack last week but is arguably better on this surface and he should figure despite a penalty. Bang Tidy also has claims off a 3lb higher mark having won at Doncaster on his latest start. Polytrack winner DUKE OF DESTINY is making steady progress and came within a head of scoring at Kempton on his reappearance. Ed Walker's unexposed charge gets the nod back on Turf with a 7lb claimer in the plate as though both Zenafire and Balmoral Castle went close at Wolverhampton recently, they are still looking for their first wins.
