Don't Tell Claire has been raised 6lb for winning at Sandown but has plenty of scope. Tommy Rock went close at Leicester and is preferred to last week’s winner at Wolverhampton, Wrath Of Hector, while Good Job Power has a chance on last year’s winning form at Epsom though hasn’t raced since October. KINSMAN faced a tough task at Ascot on his reappearance and handicap debut but will be sharper today. He’s fancied to finish much closer at this lower level and the Haggas yard has an impressive strike rate at the track.
