KANGAROO COURT's victory over course and distance last month was mightily impressive. If he's back to his best, Emma Lavelle's charge should have few problems defying an 11lb higher mark. Wilton Milan is the least exposed of these and won at Worcester and Southwell last season. He should continue heading in the right direction while Wayward Prince is a useful chaser on his day though, along with Uncle Jimmy and Dragon's Den, lacks a recent run. Bravo Bravo beat the latter at Ludlow in April but disappointed at Chepstow 10 days ago while Hansupfordetroit has been chasing lately.
