Prolific on the all-weather surfaces last winter, William Haigh can race off a much lower mark on Turf but has been beaten out of sight on his last couple of outings. Standpoint recorded a hat-trick when scoring at Doncaster last time but his wins have been in a lower grade over shorter trips. DANCING PRIMO won four times last year and has been steadily coming back to her best in three starts this season. Beaten a short-head at Haydock last time, Mark Brisbourne's mare looks set to strike. Arizona John usually finds at least one too good but St Ignatius keeps on digging out a bit more and just got the better of Sir Boss at Kempton last week.
