SECRET INSIDER (NAP) won at Chelmsford last month with Sir Dudley back in fourth and Lucymai further behind. He looked to have plenty in hand at the finish and can defy a 6lb rise in this.

Hold On Magnolia won over the same distance at Wolverhampton in December but was beaten at the same track off a higher mark last time.
