Rasaman, who has won 10 races, looks well handicapped though a high draw tempers enthusiasm as it does for Bond Fastrac, who powered home at Beverley last time. Close To The Edge is well named having landed stall one but in 27 starts he's never raced on ground with give. TOBY TYLER is probably high enough in the weights but he likes it here, loves soft going and is well enough drawn to gain the 10th victory of his career. His trainer has another chance with hat-trick seeking Nomoreblondes though she's best at the minimum trip but David O'Meara's Irish import Anderiego doesn't look badly treated and should be suited by the trip and conditions. The veteran Green Park has won a dozen races in his career and shows no sign of stopping so, with Neil Farley's claim a bonus, can get competitive from his low draw.
