Leg Iron is back on the same mark as when scoring at Warwick in December. West Cork Flash has every chance if forgiven his latest poor effort as he was denied by only a nose at Fontwell before that. Smart Exit has failed to figure off today's higher mark since winning at Towcester in January but Ballyvoneen has won five times over track and trip and is not easily dismissed after unseating last time. CAMPBONNAIS returned to winning ways over timber last month and can race off a lower mark back over fences. This looks a good opportunity for Ali Brewer's charge and he gets the nod.
