Trautmann beat New Abbey Angel by half-a-length over track and trip last month with Falcon's Fire only sixth. He followed up here a couple of weeks later and Falcon's Fire was the pick of the two Dalgleish runners on that occasion. Rebecca Menzies’ hat-trick seeker has only been raised a couple of pounds but could find one too good today in the shape of MAC O’POLO. Tom Dascombe’s gelding is 5lb lower than when second at Haydock in May and is worth another try over 1m4f on a sharp track like this. Flower Power only won a seller at Beverley earlier this month and is 3lb higher now.
