Robbian got off the mark back over this trip at Beverley but that was in a seller on heavy ground. By Rights is 5lb higher than when scoring at Nottingham but gets on well with claimer Joey Haynes and should be thereabouts again and makes more appeal than Biscuiteer, who appears much better on Polytrack. Blinkers might bring about some improvement in CHUCKAMENTAL and he's shown speed on a couple of occasions. Bryan Smart's charge gets a token vote in a weak end to proceedings.
