COMPTON PARK is penalised for winning at Pontefract last time. But he drops down a grade for this and gets a tentative vote in what looks something of a lottery. Doncaster winner Duke Cosimo found a 6lb rise beyond him at Redcar last time where Hadaj finished fourth. The latter may yet come good this season while Arctic Feeling returned to winning ways at York recently and is preferred to Windsor maiden winner Supersta. Ambitious Boy looks fairly handicapped but hasn't raced since October.
