Dangerous Age ended last year with a hat-trick that included a couple of victories on the Polytrack. She's worse off with the runner-up Triple Dream on running at Wolverhampton but may not have finished improving yet. Powerful Wind was raised 9lb for scoring at Southwell in December but has run well since despite not winning while Muhdiq also has a shout, though he was engaged to run at Wolverhampton yesterday. TAX FREE scored over track and trip on his last visit to this venue. Dandy Nicholl's veteran might just be capable of going in again off only a 2lb higher mark and gets the vote.
