AUTOCRACY looks to have a good opportunity. A winner on the Polytrack last month, he's gone close in both starts since including over C&D recently and looks to be still improving. Dual C&D winner, Imaginary Diva, is back on a winning mark and Court Applause is 3lb lower than when scoring at Wolverhampton in February. Punching can race off a much lower mark on this surface as he does all his winning on the Fibresand nowadays and it's difficult to make a serious case for any of the remainder.
