Evan Williams has a good strike-rate here and has sent up three runners from his Welsh base today. CESAR COLLONGES can get the raiding party up and running as his fourth here last month wasn't a fair reflection of the way he travelled in the race.Vino's Choice led for a long way at Kelso last month and will know more today. Spin The Coin has been placed between the flags and his yard has done with similar types while Canny Style has won five times on the Flat up to 1m5f so will be a threat to all if taking to hurdles.
