Lawyer landed the odds by only a neck over 6f here on his handicap bow but has been raised 9lb anyway. More Aspen has a 7lb hike to contend with after scoring over track and trip but Oriental Relation cam race off the same mark despite making the frame in a higher grade race at Thirsk last time. Sullivan Street ran a shocker at Brighton during the week but Monte Viso has claims on his latest second at this track. SOUND OF SUMMER goes handicapping for the first time and she gets the vote with improvement expected.
