AMAZING GRAZING finished in front of Bellevarde when runner-up over 5f here a fortnight ago. He’s placed over today’s extra furlong in the past and gets the vote. Kommander Kirkup won over track and trip before returning a losing favourite in a claiming race here and could be in the mix while Global Melody won a novices’ contest at the track recently, though over the minimum distance and this is tougher. Jack The Truth was well beaten on a previous outing on the Fibresand and Chelmsford winner Dollar Value debuts on this surface.
