Milton Harris’ Polyphonic chased home the former at Fontwell in March and should have chances at these revised terms having filled the runners-up spot again at Ffos Las last month.
Inferno Sacree has enjoyed a super start to the year winning four times for Nigel Hawke and is another consider up in trip to an extended two-miles-and-two-furlongs.
At the other end of the card, Fry hands a third start to £20,000 buy Our Nel in the Sky Sports Racing Sky 415 Mares’ Open National Hunt Flat Race (5.30).

The five-year-old added to last July’s victory with a couple of good efforts in defeat before scoring again at Ludlow after a 118-day break.
Stablemate Cousu Main will sport first-time cheekpieces and is another to consider dropped in grade since finishing down the field at Haydock last month.
Lucky Lover Boy scored four times over hurdles last year and returns from a break for the Oliver Greenall and Josh Guerrero team with Henry Brooke taking the ride.
5.10 Bath – In-form Symbol Of Hope clashes with Delegate The Lady
There are eight races on a jam-packed evening at Bath, kicking off with 13 runners in the Star Sports Bet Handicap (5.10).
Symbol Of Hope’s last four victories have all come at the track and Grace Harris’ five-year-old tops the weights having made a winning return here at the start of the month when he had Dave Evans’ Shesadabber in behind.
Delegate The Lady is up 5lbs for her victory at Yarmouth last month and the task is now to make it back-to-back wins for only the second time in her career.
Malcolm Saunders’ Diamond Cottage has been running well of late and produced a career-best to score at Brighton last month.
