NIGHT ON EARTH (NAP) failed to recover from an early stumble at Southwell last month when bidding for a hat-trick. He gets another chance in this with an apprentice’s 7lb allowance also helping his cause. Ornate showed some improvement for a slide down the weights when beaten less than a length at Wolverhampton recently and should go well again while Ballyare had the measure of Buniann when scoring over 6f at Wolverhampton two runs ago. Miss Nay Never and Look Out Louis haven’t raced since September with the former preferred having won twice over track and trip last year.
