ATTWAAL returned a ready winner at Lingfield last month and can follow-up off a 4lb higher mark. Achalas wasn't beaten that far on his reappearance at Kempton and will strip fitter while Burnham has every chance on his return after going close at Leicester in October. Boston Blue should be in the mix with a repeat of his recent third at Doncaster and Bernisdale can also figure having won over 1m4f at Wolverhampton in March. Into The Wind won a seller over track and trip last year before landing an amateur's race at Warwick and is another to consider.
