KHELAC's presence complicates matters as he was engaged to run at Lingfield last night. He looked ahead of the handicapper when winning at the same track earlier and could well be good enough to take this if turning up. In his absence, Hunting Rights has strong claims off his current mark and New Falcon is only 3lb higher than when scoring over 7f here last season. Caramack is still searching for that elusive first win and failed again back in maiden company at Windsor last time.
