An interesting little race despite the small turnout. The one to appeal most is MIKMAK, who doubled his career tally when winning over C&D last month and whose only other course run resulted in a very sound second off this mark here last time. That clear liking for this track earns him the vote ahead of the progressive Mooltazem and last week's clearcut Pontefract winner Lamloom. [Mel Cullinan]

Comparatively lightly raced 4yo who comes here in fine form, last time edging home in fair race at Ayr; 3lb rise is fair and every reason to expect another very bold bid in his hat-trick attempt.

Penalty for last week's front-running 1m Pontefract win takes him to career-high mark; however, this consistent sort is clearly in fine form and promised to stay this trip fine when winning a 1m1f maiden last season, so could well take plenty of catching.

Modest strike-rate and been second a few too many times for comfort; on the other hand, his only two starts here have yielded a C&D win last month and a good second over 1m1f last time out and very much a contender returned to Ripon today.

Dropped away late in the day upped to 1m1f when running very respectably last time and stamina for 1m2f very much to prove here; not far away on form of previous 1m Wetherby win off 5lb higher now and won off a mark higher than today's one for Mark Johnston last season.

Usually runs well here, as when winning over C&D last July following a second of six in this race; not operating at quite the same level this season despite some creditable runs here and others have more pressing claims.
