HERMOCRATES (7.05) gave notice he was poised to strike on the Fibresand when giving Notation a late scare here 13 days ago and this longer 1m 6f trip may just do the trick.
Trainer John Mackie has his string in top order and Cieren Fallon is a good booking. Hermocrates is up 3lb and will need to be at the top of the game to beat off dual course winner Beat The Heat, Windsor winner Lady Isabel and Keith Dalgleish's Catterick runner-up Let Me Be.
GRAND PIANOLA (4.35) gave Alan King's Son Of Red a scare here 11 days ago and Tim Easterby's gelding can go one better. The front pair drew well clear, so that form looks solid.
CHARLIE FELLOWES (7.05) has been in terrific heart and drew more than seven lengths clear of Country Charm at Wolverhampton three weeks ago. George Scott has handed the ride to rookie apprentice Alex Jary and that may help the price. The youngster has been placed twice from 14 rides in public and this is by far his best opportunity of a winner.
