It’s noticeable that David O’Meara’s is now a prominent figure in the betting after remaining a maiden from his opening seven starts and he was only denied a head at this course last time out.
He’s up 2lb for that but his better form does appear to arrive over the five-furlong trip and perhaps this is the day he can finally get his head past the post first.
Romantic Thought was a winner at Catterick last time out and commands respect on that merit, making his all-weather debut.

James Fanshawe sends only one runner from Suffolk with Tom Marquand partnering his former course winner on handicap debut.
The form from his Nottingham third proved fruitful when he scored in the northeast back in September and he can overcome a stiff-looking mark of 75 to score once again here.
Phillip Makin’s The Menstone Gem wasn’t beaten far here last month to maintain his consistent form at the track from two starts here and he looks the obvious danger to the selection, albeit conceding 2lb.
