Windforpower passed the post first in a seller over C&D last week a short-head in front of MARMOT BAY. Disqualified for interference, the latter was awarded the race and can go in again on today's better terms. Doubts surround the selection's stablemate Claude Greenwood as he was way below his best once again when sent off favourite for a claimer over a longer trip here last time while Traps Army and Doodles make no appeal on what they've shown so far.
