A trappy heat in which most have some sort of chance. Lenny Bee, Diamond Blue and Red Baron have all been knocking on the door while Hopes N Dreams is starting to look well handicapped. Hamoody has been running in sellers, however, while Lucky Dan has struggled a little since returning to the Turf. BARNEY MCGREW was beaten less than a length in a blanket finish at Doncaster last month and is only a pound higher here. This stiff 5f should suit Michael Dods' veteran and he can end a long losing run. Last week's course and distance third Red Cape looks best of the rest.
