Recent Southwell winner Decimate has something to prove back on the Polytrack and the same comment applies to Greek Islands, a runner-up on the Fibresand last time. Dvinsky is still capable at this level on his day but Spirit Of Gondree and Odd Ball look high enough in the weights now after earlier victories on the all-weather. MUHANDIS scored off a higher mark over C&D back in February and after going close back at this track last week, Nick Littmoden's charge looks set for a return to winning ways.
