YOURARTISONFIRE caused interference when drifting left over track and trip last time and was demoted from second place. Joey Haynes will no doubt try to keep nearer the inside rail this time and it might just work. Pearl Nation won at Southwell recently but has been raised 7lb for that and Democrates makes more appeal having only his second start of the year with Richard Hughes doing the steering. The veteran Smarty Socks and Deauville Prince have both tumbled down the weights and could bounce back at any time while the unreliable Jammy Guest can also figure on a going day.
