Inside Knowledge won over C&D in January but looks too high in the weights now after a couple of defeats since, while the same comment applies to Delorain. However, there should be more to come from Foreign King who is only 3lb higher than when scoring here last September and Kadouchski has been in good form over hurdles of late. MY VALLEY won over 1m4f here on her Polytrack debut and first start for a new yard. She was beaten in much better company over C&D last month but this looks more her level and Pat Phelan's mare can return to winning ways.
