Holdenhurst has won over the course and distance and bounced back to form on soft ground at Chepstow so should go well as should David's Beauty, who has scored twice on the latter track in recent weeks and is still on a fair mark. Cappananty Con has won here and at Lingfield in recent weeks though is better on the all-weather so this can go to UNDER CURFEW. Tony Carroll's charge is much better off with David's Beauty for a narrow defeat at Chepstow and didn't get the best of runs when a beaten favourite at Lingfield last time. The stable also run Our Man In Havana but he's poorly drawn.
