Jolly Roger would have a chance in this modest heat on his best form but Cityar is only a plater and Bazart is climbing the weights without winning. Roxane Bruere usually finds at least one too good and Cruise Control has now had 32 career starts without winning while Samizdat returns from a break and has his first run for a new yard today. RUBY CROWN has a decent strike rate and is lightly-raced for her age. She made a perfectly satisfactory return to action when fourth at Uttoxeter last month and can recapture the winning thread here.
