RETAINER comes out best at the weights and can take advantage as he's been keeping good company without success this year. Maze is another dropped in class after three wins this season including a claimer earlier in the year, while Barons Spy also landed a similar race at Leicester back in August. Remotelinx has claims on his best form but arrives out of sorts and Stevie Gee may prove best of the remainder having scored over 7f at Wolverhampton last month.
