Lord Lescribaa has done all of his winning at this venue including last year's renewal. He's back on a winning mark so it would be no surprise to see a return to form. Lord Of The Dunes is another who could pop-up at any time having tumbled down the weights but PLUM PUDDING has the best recent form. He was runner-up at Worcester last time and can end a long losing run in this. Ned The Post was still well beaten when third at Worcester during the week but finished ahead of King Of Dubai.
