MISTY LANE defied a long absence to land a handicap here last May but shot up the weights and only ran twice subsequently. The assessor has dropped her 6lb and though returning from another long break that's never a problem for one from this yard and she can score again. Stoichkhov has a career strike-rate of 1-27 but that victory came here and he's only 1lb higher. He had Red Laser two lengths behind when runner-up to Have A Nice Day two weeks ago and looks certain to get into the mix but Danseur De Feu has yet to win a race, though she'll have found 1m3f stretching her stamina last time.
