Poetic Power had Lean Burn 10 lengths away in fourth when winning at Uttoxeter last month but the latter is 9lb better off now and is entitled to get a lot closer.

Brian Ellison may be able to wrest a little improvement out of KAYFROU so we'll take a chance on the eight-year-old in a modest event, even though he's still 12lb higher than his one and only victory.
