Overrule and Diamond Vision come out best at the weights in this seller but the former is much better on Fibresand while the latter returns from a break. WILLIAM'S WAY seems to run best fresh so it's a bit of a worry that he was in action only last week but Chris Martin got him home in front in a fractionally better race over C&D last month and is fancied to repeat the trick today. Dew Reward, veteran Kames Park and Maid Of Heft are others to consider and neither Rub Of The Relic nor Spartan King can be ignored in this grade.
