SMUGGLERS CREEK was far from disgraced in third at Wolverhampton and the handicapper may have taken a big chance in dropping him 2lb for that effort. Ubla struck over this trip on his penultimate start at Lingfield and may have found stepping up to a mile too much to bear last time, while Mezmaar is another dropping back in trip who could improve on his recent effort over a mile. Termsnconditions appears better over 6f, but it's interesting connections persevere at this distance after he struggled behind Ubla.
SMUGGLERS CREEK has yet to match his Irish form since joining Iain Jardine, but he's still unexposed and this represents a drop in class, so he could be the answer in what is an open race. Mansfield flatters to deceive somewhat but he should really be competitive in a contest like this, with Mezmaar another to consider.
