Let Me In ended last year in fine form on the all-weather but is 7lb higher for his return. Thane Of Cawdor has been winning at Kempton but has yet to score away from the Polytrack while though Stockhill Diva made a winning reappearance at Leicester with a below-par Zafranagar well beaten this looks tougher. Bobbyscot has a shout on his latest second at Windsor but FIRST POST is just preferred. The latter ran well for third behind Top Diktat at Newbury last month and has got the better of Sheila's Buddy on both occasions they've met this year.
