Oldjoesaid has been raised 7lb for his victory at Musselburgh and may be vulnerable here. COME ON DAVE made a promising reappearance at the Scottish track behind Move In Time and the winner followed up in a valuable handicap at Doncaster on Saturday. Dandy Nicholls' four-year-old races off the same mark today and can go one better, though Another Citizen has been going well on the Polytrack and can race off a 5lb lower mark back on Turf. Alaskan Bullet, Bronze Beau and Six Wives are all speedy types while Elusive Bonus came good at the backend of last season and may have more to offer.
