MCCRACKENS GATE shaped with real encouragement following a year off the track to finish third at Hexham last month and he could build on that off a 1lb lower mark here for a Justin Landy team who are saddling a winner every four runners this term. Seapoint was third when sent off favourite at Market Rasen and could prove popular again, while Sedgefield runner-up Starplex has to be considered with Brian Hughes in the saddle.

CAPARD KING was beaten a fair way into third on his reappearance at Ayr, but he could come on for that effort and a 3lb lower mark puts him on the same rating as when a good second last spring. Speak Of The Devil looks to get back on track having unseated at Haydock last time, with his previous second over C&D offering plenty of encouragement. Diamond Brig is interesting on his first outing for Nick Alexander and the three-time point-to-point winner was successful on his only Rules outing to date.

HEY BOB got stuck in the mud at Hexham last time but a chance is taken on him bouncing back to his best. A repeat of his eight-length victory on similar ground at Sedgefield two starts ago will make him tough to beat. Pistol is hard to predict but the 10-year-old is worth keeping an eye on following wind surgery, while The Black Squirrel drops back in trip on his first outing in 508 days and is nicely treated if able to recapture his best form.
