RAKHINE STATE (1.50) is one for favourite backers in the opener at Perth. Gordon Elliott and Richard Johnson have a loyal following at the Scone track and Rakhine State ran a fine fourth to Zero Ten at Leopardstown, with the winner subsequently finishing runner-up in a Grade 2 novice hurdle at Fairyhouse.
At Beverley, MOTAFAAWIT (3.20) can defy top weight sporting the Hamdan Al Maktoum silks. The gelding was beaten a head by Legends Of War at Newbury in July and that piece of form looks stronger than Nefarious's Wolverhampton victory in January.
AGAR'S PLOUGH (4.25) caught the eye at Pontefract, running on into fifth behind Casement. That was the four-year-old's first outing for Mick Easterby since leaving Ed Dunlop and some improvement can reasonably be expected.
PROUD ARCHI (4.55) rates a decent each-way punt as he runs the Yorkshire track very well, beating Magical Effect and Areen Heart here last summer. He should be all the better for his sixth to Right Action in a 19-runner handicap at Doncaster's Lincoln fixture.
