BEAUTIFUL LANDO seemed to have a bit in hand when scoring over track and trip last week under Kieren Fallon. The latter is back on board today and Heather Main's charge can defy a 5lb rise and follow-up. Crucis Abbey is another with claims judged on his third here last month when he had Bilko Pak behind, while Justbookie Dot Com got the better of Cadmium Loch over 6f here recently and there's little between that pair on today's terms. Catterick winner One Of Twins was placed here last time and is another to consider.
