IDDER didn't get the run of the race when well supported in a slightly stronger contest at Doncaster last month. The extra furlong here should be in his favour and he is capable of giving the weight away to Derbyshire, upped in grade off a 5lb higher mark after landing a gamble over 1m here three weeks ago. Starlit Cantata seems to reserve her best for the Polytrack but there are possibilities about Damascene, though he's been raised a pound since his fourth at Haydock. Emef Diamond would also have a chance on his third at Nottingham in April as he's 2lb lower now.
