Richard Fahey won last year's renewal and Gabrial's Kaka is one of a host of lightly-raced contenders. Code Of Honor, Georgian Bay and recent course and distance winner Hay Dude can also be included on that list but HERE COMES WHEN gets the vote. Andrew Balding's charge beat the previously undefeated Breton Rock at Chester last time and is fancied to reverse earlier running with Baltic Knight. The latter finished third behind Dundonnell in Listed company last week and stablemate Alhebayeb also ran well in a decent handicap at Newmarket on his reappearance. Newstead Abbey is upped 10lb after landing a hat-trick on his latest start and Country Western was beaten off today's mark at Headquarters last time having recorded a double before that.
