LITTLE CHINA won over the minimum trip at this track earlier and has gone close over today's trip here before. She's gets the nod ahead of Lord Buffhead, second on the Fibresand at Southwell last time but a previous course and distance winner. The latter finished ahead of Rutterkin at Catterick last month while Gracie's Games has been getting closer on the Turf of late. Rise To Glory has failed to figure since landing a double back in March.
