Michael Bell has struck form in the past couple of weeks and HART STOPPER was a winner for the yard at Windsor a fortnight ago. The ground was riding fast that day which it won't be here but there's no reason why he won't be suited by the conditions and a 6lb rise doesn't look enough to halt his progress. Glacier Point was well supported on her reappearance in a Bath maiden but disappointed while Father McKenzie has been a bit inconsistent since landing a Pontefract maiden in September and was beaten 6l into second last time. Cappananty Con has shown little on Turf but has improved on the all-weather over the winter and wouldn't need much more to get into contention. Angel Palanas reappears after a long break but it was soft ground when he ran his best race to date at Redcar in October so conditions should suit.

Hart Stopper 5-1fav (9-7) Switched right after start and held up towards rear, troubled passage and plenty to do from 2f out, headway switched left then right over 1f out, gap opened and squeezed through to lead final 110 yards, soon clear, won at Windsor 6f hcp (5) gf in May beating Delfie Lane (9-6) by 1 1/4l, 15 ran.
