Rakaan showed his first worthwhile form since winning at Meydan early in the year when beaten a nose in a Folkestone claimer last month. He still looks flattered by his current mark, however, and preference is for multiple Polytrack winner LOCKANTANKS. The latter has been winning on the Turf this summer and may have too much for Fathsta back on this surface as they both take a drop in class. Prime Exhibit won one of these events over C&D last month and Beckermet has claims in this company along with Rulesn'regulations, who was engaged to run here yesterday.
