Nazreef has recorded seven of his eight wins so far on the all-weather and is not easily overlooked on his return. Come On Blue Chip has been placed in this grade more than once and looks to have solid claims though Robin Hoods Bay has a tougher task upped in class carrying a penalty for last week's victory at Wolverhampton. Spifer has only his second start on Polytrack and could be thereabouts along with C&D winner Emma's Gift, who is now back on a winning mark. However, it could pay to stick with maiden winner STARFIELD as he dotted up at Wolverhampton last month and has plenty of scope on his handicap debut.
