Capla Demon attempts the minimum trip for the first time after finishing second over 6f at Kempton. But BOMAD gets another chance in this as he landed a double over 5f including a course and distance success before beaten over further in a higher grade contest at Doncaster last week. Avon Green won over track and trip in February and will be sharper for a recent comeback while Brandy Station, Three Little Birds and Jonnysimpson are all looking to exploit a slide down the weights.
