Plating winner Boogangoo ran a shocker when stepped up in class last time but Crowmania coped much better in Class 4 company on his latest start when landing the odds at Wolverhampton. The latter is the one to beat on that form, but a couple of less-exposed types may improve past him. Poker Gold opened his account over track and trip in December and should go well on his handicap bow though MUSTAJJID has the more recent form. Roger Varian's colt won over 7f at Wolverhampton at the first time of asking and the runner-up has gone close since.
