Hab Reeh is upped 6lb for his win at Newcastle but scored off a higher mark last season and makes more appeal than the penalised Busy Bimbo, who won over 5f here last time. Layla's Hero ended a long losing run at Southwell in January and went close again when runner-up at Thirsk last week. He has every chance on that but SEE CLEARLY is just preferred. The latter was rated 8lb higher at this time last year and found only one too good in better company at Doncaster on her latest start. Cards and Oak Bluffs are handicap debutants to watch out for in the betting.
