The four-year-old Maakirr makes his belated debut and the Street Cry gelding may well take to the Fibresand. However, he has to give plenty of weight to the younger horses at this time of year and COMBUSTIBLE makes more appeal. The latter chased home the 77-rated Bispham Green over 6f here last Saturday and a similar effort should see her get the better of recent Wolverhampton third Free Island. Dolly Diva is preferred to Ava Schmetterling but the dark horse is Moss Hill, well beaten in a couple of starts at Newmarket last year and having his first start since July.
Dolly Diva 25-1 (9-6) Slowly into stride, in rear, stayed on final furlong, nearest finish, 4th of 15, 3 1/2l behind Cross The Boss (9-0) at Newcastle 7f hcp 0-60 (6) gd in Sep.
