FAT GARY's winning run came to an end when stepped up in class here last time. An earlier hat-trick included a couple of wins over track and trip and Jack Duern's allowance can see his mount confirm earlier superiority over Burren View Lady. The latter should be thereabouts once again and Fortinbrass also has a shout given he'd been successful at this track prior to scoring at Southwell a fortnight ago. The remainder are harder to fancy with Clubland remaining 10lb higher than when winning over course and distance last year, though Caspian Prince did win over 5f when trained in France.
