Ffos Las winner Gracie's Games is up in class under a penalty and others have stronger claims as they look to bounce back to winning ways off their current marks. That list includes Italian Tom, Hab Reeh and Koharu, though the latter usually saves her best for Brighton. Borough Boy was beaten only a length at Warwick last time and can figure again but a speculative vote goes to CAPTAIN KENDALL, who has won on the all-weather off a 6lb higher mark and failed to get a clear run when fourth at Nottingham last time.
