KICKEN OFF has suffered a couple of narrow-margin defeats at this track recently. Headed at the post on a slow surface for the first of those, he should have no trouble taking care of today's opposition with a similar effort. Must Be Me looks next best on her earlier fourth over 5f here, despite a poor effort at Catterick last time, as Petite Georgia was still beaten over eight lengths when fourth at Lingfield on her debut though she did have Cernanova well behind. Black Eider showed little in a couple of starts in April and is hard to fancy.
