GALACTIC POWER is on a hat-trick after victories at Catterick and Exeter, the latest in a slightly better race than this. Though he's up 8lb, he can take care of these rivals. Aza Run landed a minor handicap at Leicester but was well beaten from just 2lb higher at Sedgefield while Knocknamona's victory at Newcastle was on very testing ground, which he won't get here. Arabian Oasis has been well beaten in all recent starts, including on the all-weather earlier this month.
