Social Drive and Annimation have both won bumpers on Turf but hardly arrive in the best of form. Dalrymple had eight starts on Polytrack on the Flat and never made the frame once while Lodgician is getting a little long in the tooth, though must have place claims in such an uncompetitive affair. NATURAL SPRING was only beaten a length-and-a-quarter in one of these over course and distance 12 days ago and a similar effort today should see Suzy Smith's mare in the winner's circle as staying hurdler Grassfinch would undoubtedly prefer a lot further and Track Star has yet to show any sign of ability.
