This looks tricky but last year's winner All The Winds might struggle to overturn recent course and distance running with the progressive Lineman, despite more favourable terms. Royal Alcor beat Mica Mika over a longer trip here last time but there shouldn't be much to choose between the pair today. But THE LOCK MASTER, who has won a couple of times on the Polytrack, should take all the beating if reproducing his run on the Fibresand last month. That was a much hotter contest and he's only been raised 3lb.
The Lock Master (IRE) 12-1 (8-5) Soon pushed along in rear, ridden and headway 3f out, switched left 2f out, challenged over 1f out, driven to lead inside final furlong, edged right and stayed on, won at Southwell 1m 3f hcp 0-105 (2) fbs in Feb beating Frontier Fighter (9-9) by 2 1/4l, 7 ran.
Mica Mika (IRE) 8-1 (9-1) Raced wide close up, ridden to lead over 1f out, driven and headed close home, 2nd of 7, 1/2l behind Royal Alcor (9-7) at Wolverhampton 1m 6f hcap (4) pol.
Lineman 9-2 (8-12) Tracked leader, led well over 1f out, soon ridden clear, stayed on strongly, won at Wolverhampton 1m 4f hcp 0-75 (5) pol in Feb beating Gabrial The Boss (8-11) by 2 1/4l, 5 ran.
Royal Alcor (IRE) 10-1 (9-7) Held up in rear, headway 2f out, driven to challenge between horses inside final furlong, led close home, won at Wolverhampton 1m 6f hcap (4) pol beating Mica Mika (9-1) by 1/2l, 7 ran.
All The Winds (GER) 3-1 (9-1) Chased leaders, effort over 2f out, soon weakened, last of 5, 10l behind Lineman (8-12) at Wolverhampton 1m 4f hcp 0-75 (5) pol in Feb.
