C&D winner Trinity Star enjoys his visits to the West Yorkshire venue and Michael Dods' experienced campaigner could be ready to strike again from a career low mark. However, a chance is taken on Briyouni who was second over this distance two starts back before disappointing when upped to a mile and a quarter last time. He is backed to bounce back and could be ably assisted by the application of first-time blinkers. Amy Murphy's duo of Carnival King and Thaqaffa also have to be considered along with Echo Of Lightning, who is interesting on his first start for Roger Fell.
