Fair Breeze improved to finish second behind Waving here last time but that may have been down to the 1m6f trip. Collateral form with the latter gives recent Lingfield runner-up Miles Of Sunshine a better chance and he can go close with Serena Brotherton on board. Well Owd Mon has a bit to find with the above but Think has a chance having slipped further down the weights. RED SKIPPER was returning from a lay-off when third at Lingfield recently and he gets a tentative vote with improvement expected.
