Broxi didn't offer much encouragement at Hamilton and needs to improve for the experience, as Ventura Mutiny did when third at Redcar. The bar isn't set very high and this looks an ideal opportunity for CHASE THE DOLLAR. Mark Johnston's Frankel colt is out of a mare who won the Rockfel at two, and won't need to live up to that illustrious pedigree fully to get off the mark.

LOGI hasn't managed to get his head in front for the best part of two years but suggested that the drought could soon be over when third at Thirsk last week. He takes his chance in this off the same mark and is preferred to Ghathanfar, who needs to prove Friday's Doncaster second was no fluke. Bibbidibobbidiboo caught the eye when fifth on his return at Ripon and is feared most of the remainder.

Annangel banished her poor Newcastle introduction from the memory when springing an 80/1 shock over this distance at Beverley. She ran out a decisive winner but will do well to successfully concede weight to JOSHUA R, who showed potential as a juvenile and suggested his turn could be imminent when runner-up at Pontefract on his comeback. Sound Of Iona has a definite chance if ready to roll following almost a year on the sidelines.

Bal Mal carries a double penalty after quick successes at Redcar and Beverley and should go close once more if fully over those exertions. It makes sense for connections to keep him going before a revised mark comes into effect, but this is a stronger race than Saturday's and SPORTS REPORTER is worth chancing. Fifth on his handicap debut at Doncaster, the Richard Fahey-trained three-year-old was sent off favourite there and should appreciate the drop from 6f. Not On Your Nellie can take third.

Desert Ace showed a bit more when fifth at Thirsk and deserves respect as a past C&D winner, while fellow veteran Robot Boy continues to perform well in defeat and should help to set a solid form outlook. Gleniffer remains capable of better but hasn't been sighted since September, and perhaps GOWANBUSTER can capitalise. Consistent on the all-weather throughout the winter, the five-year-old is rated 4lb lower on turf and has performed well after breaks in the past.
