For Shia And Lula won over 7f on the Polytrack last time and Chester winner Comanchero was placed on the same surface last month. Arrowzone was still well beaten when third at Carlisle while Sweet Martoni is up another 5lb after scoring at Windsor back in June. ROCKET RONNIE has slipped back down the weights and finally showed some benefit when going close at Beverley last time. Dandy Nicholls' charge gets the vote to go one better.
