Sandynow is starting to run out of chances over fences but has dropped a further 2lb since finishing second at Haydock. Miss Kalifa came good at Fakenham at the start of the month but may not have beaten much and will find this tougher, despite an apparently favourable handicap mark. Double Dash has proved consistent but is climbing the weights while Little Chip disappointed at Haydock after winning at Market Rasen. Moleskin appears to be going backwards and MOHI RAHRERE hasn't sparkled lately but Barry Leavy's 10-year-old can probably be forgiven a couple of recent runs on heavy going as he's thrown in on his best form. We'll give him a chance to recapture that on this better ground.
