Only 2lb separates those with an official rating. Sand And Deliver is hard to fancy and Bapak Bangsawan looks to be treading water at present while Annaley My Darling hasn't raced since August. But Silca's Dream has a first-time visor applied and looks to have every chance after showing plenty of pace when a close-up third over 6f at this track. However, GREEN MILLIONAIRE improved on his debut effort to finish runner-up at Wolverhampton month and, with further progress expected, he gets the nod.
