Difficult to get a handle on this messy affair as the top rated pair MUNSARIM and Spinning Ridge were both engaged to run at this track last night. The former would be the selection if taking part and the latter has the beating of Indian Art and Slam on recent form. If neither turn up then Ahlawy should take advantage as he ran well behind Greyfriarschorista here last time, despite the unfavourable terms. Dr Albert has outside claims at the weights on his run behind Complex over C&D in December.
