Makethe Mostofnow has own twice over shorter trips at this track but has something to prove today having failed over today's distance on a couple of previous occasions. Both he and the other dual winner, African Broadway, will find it tough giving so much weight to MISS KALIFA. The latter struggled in better company last time, but had beaten the re-opposing Ardkilly Gunner 12 lengths over C&D before that and Peter Bowen's mare can recapture the winning thread. Bumper winner Special Mate could prove best of the remainder.
