Buxton and Monte Cassino are regular all-weather winners but not around here. The three-year-old Maggie Pink may also be worth opposing while Amosite has been fighting a losing battle with the handicapper for a while. Piccolo Express has the past form to figure, however, and it would be no surprise to see Ryedale Dancer bounce back from a few below-par efforts back here. Boy The Bell also has a chance at the weights but WYNDHAM WAVE is much less exposed and the one to beat if reproducing his recent form at Kempton going left-handed. Man Of My Word and Koo And The Gang may be the pick of the remainder.
