BIT OF A QUIRKE's three most recent victories have all come over this course and distance and having only been handed a 2lb rise for his triumph here earlier this month, Mark Walford's track specialist can follow up in the hands of Tom Eaves. Fellow course and distance regular Bollin Ted was sent off favourite when third on that occasion and could reverse form on revised terms, while Marjorie Fife's Carlisle winner Palindrome and David O'Meara's Thirsk second Clenymistra are others to note.
BOLLIN TED was unable to threaten the well-ridden Bit of A Quirke over C&D 10 days ago, yet the former is now 2 lb better off with that rival and, in a race likely to be decided by fine margins, he may well reverse the placings re-united with David Allan. Clenymistra returned to form at Thirsk recently and can also feature, whilst Big Bad Lol also merits a second look given he's still low-mileage.
