DEMOLITION takes a drop in class and can take advantage. His latest second at Ripon is the best form on offer and he has 10lb in hand over Leviathan, another dropped in class. Desert Vision won a claimer here at a big price last time with Indian Art behind but Elijah Pepper looks stronger in this grade. Bint Alzain went close in a claimer at Kempton last month and One Way Or Another can also be given a chance along with Brocklebank in a lottery of a race.
