News Show was placed over a shorter trip here during the summer but on fast ground and Evesham Star may also find today's going a problem. It won't bother Wells China but he's 7lb higher than when scoring at Clonmel earlier this year. Urban Gale has failed to figure in three subsequent starts since scoring at Downpatrick though Nivek's Dream has a shout dropped in class and back on soft ground. NOT FOR BURNING boasts the best recent form having won at Listowel last time beating subsequent chase winner Dick Dundee. She gets the nod despite a 5lb rise in the weights.
