2.35: CARRANITA, who was not disgraced in finishing four lengths fourth to Monaassib in the Listed Cammidge Trophy over six furlongs at Doncaster on Lincoln day, goes well in the mud and has less to do here. Plaisir D'Amour is the danger.

3.05: RUSSIAN MUSIC, a creditable three lengths second to Hornbeam in the Listed Doncaster Mile at the Lincoln meeting, stays this distance well and is effective in soft going. Medaille Militaire may pose most problems.

3.40: ZUGUDI, who is effective in the mud and stays further than this, will find those assets a big advantage in this desperate ground. Cugina and Topatori, who also handle testing conditions well, also have each- way claims.

4.10: DESERT LYNX, who has the plum draw coming out of stall one, is suited by give in the ground and should go well. Mister Jolson and Ca'D'Oro, who stays further than this, are others worth considering.


3.55: DUN BELLE, who unseated her rider at Valentine's Brook in the Grand National at Aintree and was found to have mucus in her throat when disappointing in the Greenalls Grand National Trial at Haydock, has a fine chance on her 15 lengths second to Dorans Pride in the Hennessy Cognac Gold Cup Chase over three miles at Leopardstown in February. She promises to stay this distance well. Druid's Brook, who impressed at Haydock in February, stays well and was given a poor ride by an amateur rider last time. He is a danger along with Eton Gale.
