Staff Sergeant scored over a longer trip at Southwell last week and carries a penalty. Hail Promenader is upped only 3lb for winning here last month and makes more appeal than Ellaal, who beat Disco Dave in a Class 7 contest a fortnight ago. Delightful Sleep won here in November but has found DANSILI DUTCH too good at this track on a couple of occasions since. The latter gets the vote back on this surface after a below par effort on the Fibresand at Southwell.
