Richard Hannon has sent a strong team to this meeting and MUSICAL COMEDY is another with leading claims. The latter left both rivals trailing in his wake when scoring in soft ground at Haydock last time and can defy a penalty. Mitcheltown won a lowly maiden at Hamilton back in June but hasn't raced since and Finflash looks a bigger danger back on a soft surface. Urban Dreamer wasn't beaten far when third over 5f at Haydock though Dutch S is less exposed and won over today's trip at the same track on her debut. Heroique scored at Carlisle last time but is upped in class off an 8lb higher mark for this.
