Bix won a lowly handicap here last month and is 5lb higher today while Baron Run landed a maiden race over track and trip last time but had looked high enough in the weights in handicaps before that. Alexandrakollontai is another course winner who should be thereabouts but KHELMAN is fancied to bounce back in this. He's slipped 8lb down the weights since winning his maiden and with George Chaloner taking a further 5lb off his back it could be his turn today. Chasing Dreams looks best of the rest.
