Stablemates Triple Dream and Island Legend locked horns over C&D last Wednesday with the former, who now carries a penalty, coming out on top. The latter is an admirable sort that should ensure there is no hanging around and he may be capable of reversing the form off the revised weights, seemingly with less opposition for the lead declared on paper. Preferred above both, however, is CAPTAIN SCOOBY, who made plenty of late headway to take third behind the aforementioned pair last time and races off a 2lb lower mark here. Estonia is capable of going well at this level and is another to consider.

Menadati historical data/form

JOHN LOUIS improved for the step up to this trip when scoring at Lingfield last time and is taken to get the better of Hurricane Hymnbook, a neck second that day, to land the spoils, despite meeting that rival on 1lb worse terms. The selection is open to more improvement around middle distances and arrives fresher than most, having enjoyed the benefit of a five-month break prior to his return in January. Menadati shaped with promise over C&D latest and also merits consideration along with Understory, a C&D winner beaten by less than a length off 1lb lower in November.

Best Trip is a capable polytrack sprinter on his day but has been struggling for form of late and needs to prove his effectiveness over this longer trip. Last Sovereign has sharpened up his fitness with a couple of recent spins on the all-weather and the booking of Jimmy Fortune for the Ollie Pears yard catches the eye. Nevertheless, MARAJAA remains the one to beat. The selection has been turned over in claimers the last twice but hasn't been beaten far on either occasion. Effective under these conditions, he will go close if running to his mark. Mambo Spirit won't be fazed by the return to 7f and makes most appeal of the remainder.
