Amazing Win has solid claims if turning up but was engaged at Ayr yesterday. Desert Strike can race off a lower mark on Turf due to his poor record on the surface of just the one win and he needs to turn around latest running with THE STRIG here. The latter finished fourth on fast ground at Lingfield last week and repeat should be good enough to score in this company. The Jailer won over C&D last season off today's mark but it's hard to make a strong case for any of the remainder.
