Wrecking Crew has yet to win on turf but is in much better form than when last tried on this surface and could figure. EVIDENT PRIDE is also without a win on grass but can race off an 19lb lower mark than his last outing on the Polytrack and showed signs of a return to form at Brighton last time. Rodrigo De Freitas won here last season and has claims, as does Roanstar judged on last year's best efforts in better company, but Broughtons Paradis looks firmly back in the handicapper's grip now.
