Like a few others at this time of the season, SPIN AGAIN can race off a lower mark back on the turf having won on the all-weather recently. He landed a double over today's trip last month and a high draw is of little consequence on today's straight 7f. The somewhat inconsistent Irie Ute is on a decent mark if producing his best form as is November's Kempton winner Yakama, while Mister Green is yet another on favourable terms if able to repeat his best Polytrack form. In contrast, Caldermud and Viking Rose both return to action on higher marks having won on turf last season.
