Ordensritter won over course and distance last April but hasn't raced since. He's 4lb higher on his return. Shalambar and Mighty Mambo have the more recent form having both scored over track and trip last time and have been raised 6lb for their troubles. Honourable Knight can race off the same mark as when winning here in September and Bert The Alert went close to following up an earlier win at Lingfield when third at the same track recently. PHOENIX FLIGHT has slid down the weights in the past year and after posting a better effort over track and trip last time, James Evans' charge gets a speculative vote to come good in this.
