Decision took advantage of a drop in the weights to score over 2m4f at Taunton last week but a 7lb penalty will make life tougher here. Bun Oir hasn't built on early promise, but Rare Symphony almost landed a gamble on her handicap debut at Warwick and can't be ignored. Souter Point had decent form on good ground around this time last year and is another to consider but Lee Edwards has a good record when riding for Tony Carroll in this type of contest and the pair team up again here with APACHE CHANT. The seven-year-old is a pound lower than when third at Huntingdon earlier in the month and today's better ground is in his favour.
