Verdict

Interchoice Star is enjoying a new lease of life with three recent wins at this track having gone three years without a victory. He's upped another 6lb for his latest success while Secret Millionaire carries a penalty after recording a rare win at Lingfield on Wednesday. Megaleka is another burdened with 6lb extra for last week's win at Lingfield when Desert Strike was well beaten. Thorpe Bay is best at Southwell and beat SOLEMN on the Fibresand in December. But the latter can take revenge back at this venue having gone close over track and trip on his last visit.
