Bumbledom was wearing cheekpieces for the first time when scoring over track and trip last month where he battled back after being headed over 1f out. A 9lb rise looks a bit harsh but Beryl The Petal arrives with a penalty for her victory over 6f here last week where she made most of the running. With two speedsters battling it out up front SOCRU, who finished strongly over 6f at Doncaster having won there earlier, can come with a late run and pick the leaders off. Stronsay is a consistent performer at this level though he's been beaten three times off this mark and though Jedd O'Keeffe's yard is in fine form Evie Speed will need to improve on what she's shown to date.
