After scoring over the C&D on his reappearance, Indian Wind was beaten a long way when favourite over a furlong shorter last week. Giant Slalom finished third that day and has dropped to a mark from which he is capable of another big effort though he may have problems confirming the form with the progressive COOLAGAD WONDER, who finished upsides in fourth and was having his first start since August and only the fifth of his career. Rum Raisin is still a maiden after 14 starts and hasn't run since finishing runner-up at Catterick in October.
