Hooflepuff has won five times on the all-weather, all of them here including two of his last four. Red Flyer is just 4lb higher than when scoring at Windsor despite two further good runs but the well-named ON THE RIGHT TRACK can complete a hat-trick. He's unbeaten in two starts here and also initiated a double at Goodwood so a 4lb rise doesn't look enough to halt his progress. Nicks Not Wonder looks a bit flattered by his form figures but Blue Medici has won around here and only just failed to get past Temple Lock at Chelmsford.
