Anytimeatall and Anfield have been knocking on the door but those at the head of the weights are expected to dominate this nursery. Captain Ryan ran as though something was amiss at Sandown but would have a chance on earlier form. However FINE ART FAIR clearly took a liking to the artificial surface at Lingfield last time and, though 4lb worse off with fourth Aya's Gift, can score again here. Lilo Lil and Douneedahand also arrive in form but the former has been busy lately and only ran at Chester on Saturday, finishing third.
