Drakefell made a winning return to action back in March but hasn’t raced since while Equimou has been raised 9lb after winning at Salisbury. Captain Lars’ winning run came to an end at Nottingham and he’s upped in class today but Nine Below Zero drops down a grade and could figure back over 5f for this. Jashma came up short at this level last time and finished behind ISLAND OF LIFE when the latter was narrowly beaten at Newbury in August. The Haggas filly has undergone wind surgery subsequently and is taken to come out best today with improvement expected.
