Gotoyourplay bids to follow up his comeback victory over a longer trip at Taunton off an 11lb higher mark and may be worth taking on here. Camden ran much better at Chepstow last time and stays this longer trip but the one to be on is probably SEVEN WOODS. He ran a fine race in the Eider at Newcastle and is 2lb lower here. Sheriff Hutton was last of 10 at Newbury 11 days ago but is certain to strip fitter now and usually goes well here. He isn't out of this either but Cnoc Seoda and My Boy Paddy need to improve to figure.
