TAMASKA just missed out on a hat-trick of victories when second at Thirsk last time, but he was slightly slow to stride that day and could go one better off the same mark here. Thornaby Pearl was a good winner on soft ground at Ripon last time having run respectably on a sounder surface the time before. He could be a danger despite a 6lb rise for that win, while Akkeringa has gone close on a couple of occasions at Yarmouth recently but is 3lb higher in this.
