KIWAYU failed to land the odds at Kempton a fortnight ago but had to be snatched up when badly hampered and did well to finish third. He can make amends with normal luck in-running here. Spanish Wedding poses a genuine threat on the back of a second at Newmarket and Nice Rose has a handicap win in her at this level judged on her latest fourth at Thirsk. Cape Explorer's winning run came to end at Sandown last time but he still makes more appeal than Arley Hall and Singalat.
