Glimpse Of Gold looks to get back on track having seen his winning run brought to a shuddering halt at Stratford last time. Pillar Of Steel is 3lb better off than when beaten a length-and-a-quarter by Bannister here last month so there should be little between the pair today. Hurricane Ali was hampered in the closing stages when unplaced behind PISGAH PIKE in a Class 2 at Market Rasen but a 4lb turnaround in the weights may not be enough for him to reverse the placings and Jamie Snowden’s charge is fancied to go in again.
