Bellgrove made it third-time lucky over course and distance last month while Orchard Road won at Wincanton in April but has his first start for a new yard here. Secrete Stream won by 10 lengths at Kelso in May and is more interesting but IT'S ALL AN ACT was impressive here earlier in the month, even though there were only three runners. Shark Hanlon's charge can double up. A market move for newcomer Muckle Roe would be significant but ex-pointers Amilliontimes and Dr Paddy are best watched on this occasion.
