Bay Laurel was not beaten far when third at Lingfield last time and scored over C&D in November. Blazeofenchantment got his head in front at Lingfield on his latest start but has a couple of lengths to find with RED DRAGON on earlier running over track and trip. The latter looks capable of better still now he's opened his account and can follow up. Lager Time steps up in trip having landed the odds over 5f during the week but faces stiffer competition in this, but It's Only Business beat higher rated rivals in a claimer here last time wearing first-time cheekpieces and should go well again.
