Grande Caiman bounced back to form when winning a claimer here last month with Force Group well beaten. That form looks superior to Relative Strength's recent victory at Wolverhampton and he looks sure to be thereabouts again. Stand Guard landed a seller last time but has yet to win over today's distance, while 1m6f winner Acropolis has plenty to find at today's weights. However, though BIN END has been difficult to keep right, he can boast the best form and may be able to take advantage dropping down to this level for the first time.
