KYLLACHY STAR ended a long losing run with victory at Lingfield in January. A runner-up in similar company at Pontefract last time, he gets a tentative vote in this. Three times a winner at this track in his younger days, One Scoop Or Two was returned a losing favourite in a seller on the Polytrack a fortnight ago while though Cono Zur won this in 2011, he was well beaten on his recent reappearance. Reggie Bond beat Tukitinyasok at Wolverhampton earlier this year but has a 9lb higher mark to contend with while Kuwait Star and Janaab would prefer a slower surface.
