Mister Wiseman is 6lb higher than when beaten 12 lengths here two weeks ago and it would be no surprise if third Ballyman, who is something of a course specialist, were to reverse the form today. Bit Of A Clown is eased in grade but most of the others have a bit to prove at present, even at this lowly level. GORING TWO is possibly an exception as he probably came up against an improver at Lingfield on his reappearance and had an earlier winner back in third. Anna Newton-Smith's charge has a decent chance today.
