Grandad Mac makes a quick reappearance under a double penalty having scored here on Monday. He had Dontpaytheferryman behind on that occasion and beat Rancho Montoya and Omega Omega when winning here earlier in the month. The latter pair are weighted to reverse running in this, but BAVARIAN NORDIC makes more appeal. Richard Whitaker's charge went close in a Class 5 handicap at this venue last month and can end a long losing run in this lesser company. Both Shirazz and Fire In Bablyon have been winning on the Polytrack and are having their first starts on this slower surface today.
