Lithaam won this race last year but remains 3lbs higher and recent efforts don't indicate we're about to see a repeat. Kinigi's best efforts have come at nearby Southwell while Divine Spirit is a horse who produces his best when the mud is flying, and with Gracie's Games' maiden victory coming in a dire contest perhaps this is best left to YOU'RELIKEMEFRANK. John Balding's charge has been in fine fettle of late and the handicapper hasn't been harsh in bumping him up 3lbs for a relatively comfortable Yarmouth success. Fast ground is ideal and sprinters in form are worth keeping on side at this level. Best One is thoroughly exposed and both turf wins have come at Brighton, Emma's Secrets ran well from out of the weights here on Tuesday and may build on that while Jeremy Glover's pair Cookie Galore, in first time blinkers, and the relatively consistent Turf Time must also be considered.
