Chandrayaan beat Signora Frasi and Wishformore over track and trip last time and steps up a grade. Warbond is usually thereabouts but one win in 29 starts doesn't boost confidence and Greek Islands' victory here in February was his first in 25 outings. Rapid Water and Putin pop up at this level occasionally and Rezwaan should be noted in the betting as he'll be taking advantage of his slide down the weights soon. Looking outside the usual suspects, DEAL ME IN had little chance in a conditions race at Wolverhampton last time but finished a respectable fourth. He has plenty of scope for improvement on his handicap debut and might just be good enough to land this.
