The betting suggested not everyone was surprised by COMPTON SILVER's return to form over 7f here last week. He made all for an easy success and can defy a penalty despite dropping back in distance. Not Now Blondie is capable of going close off her current mark and The Manx Missile finished just ahead of Hawsies Dream at Lingfield last month. Jordanstown finished closer over track and trip recently and the lightly-raced sorts Magic Ice, Nors The Panic and Quelle Affaire have scope for improvement.
