Hawaii Klass looked a thorough stayer when losing his maiden tag at Carlisle so today's extra quarter-mile will be very much in his favour. MOON INDIGO has been very highly tried since landing a novice event at Wetherby in November and makes his handicap debut here. Howard Johnson has booked Paul Gallagher for the ride and the promising young rider's allowance may prove crucial. Shooting Times comfortably landed an Ayr handicap last month and though 1lb out of the handicap and facing a 7lb hike in the weights he should give a good account under Graham Lee. Sendali bounced back with a creditable victory over the C&D and a 4lb rise shouldn't be enough to prevent another big effort from Chris Grant's charge.
