MAYKIR (3.05) had almost three lengths to spare when scoring at Southwell last Sunday and an action replay is on the cards.
The John Jenkins-trained gelding must overcome a 5lb penalty but apprentice George Rooke takes off 7lb. Grimsthorpe Castle has been running consistently over middle distances on the Fibresand all winter but this drop to a mile represents a different test.
AL SUIL EILE (4.05) also produced his Sunday best seven days ago and John Quinn bids to neutralise a fixed penalty by booking 7lb claimer George Bass. Hat-trick seeker Nick Vedder always looked a bit dodgy but has turned over a new leaf in 2021. He is another forced to carry a penalty and steps up a furlong in slightly higher grade. Motawaafeq was a strong 11-10 favourite here ten days but couldn't get the job done.
