Lapford Lad added to his C&D victory last month when returning here with an extended 2m5f success and should mount another bold bid. However, a 6lb rise for that narrow success leaves him with no margin for error and preference is for DORA'S FIELD, who was second when Lapford Lad fell over this track and trip on May 29 and Stuart Kittow's mare looks better treated than that rival as she reopposes on better terms. Ardview Boy returns to Rules on the back of a recent point-to-point hat-trick and must be respected.

After winning her last five pointing starts by at least 20 lengths, MIDNIGHT FOLIE was well backed to make a winning return to Rules at Ffos Las last week and made all in facile fashion. The handicapper will take no chances following that romp so the decision to turn her out again quickly under a 7lb penalty looks a wise one and she can follow up. Definately Vinnie and The Boom Is Back both went close in second last time out and they can fight it out for the silver medal.

ROMAIN DE SENAM continued his fine run of form when hacking up by 13 lengths over this C&D last month and an 8lb rise in unlikely to halt him if he arrives in the same mood today. The Paul Nicholls-trained gelding could have most to fear from Pacific De Baune, who is entitled to improve for his reappearance second at Uttoxeter over 2m4f last month, and Wait For Me, who has been threatening to score.
