Mind The Monarch finally got off the mark at Kempton last week but this is tougher and Dualagi has been struggling to get her head back in front in similar company here off her current mark. Final Rhapsody scored at Bath in October but has yet to run well in three starts at this track and a chance is given to MEMPHIS MAN. He has slipped down the handicap to a tempting mark now and was noted staying on in the latter stages over 6f at Southwell last time. If that effort marked a potential return to form then David Evans's charge should be good enough to take this.
