Cheveton won a division of this last year from stall 14 but is drawn even higher today and carries a penalty for last week's win at Nottingham. Waseem Faris also carries 6lb extra and is upped in class for winning at Brighton last Thursday. Oldjoesaid landed a lesser contest over track and trip last month and recent Catterick winner Wild Sauce finished a well beaten third in last season's renewal. Rylee Mooch and Sharaarah could go well but a speculative vote goes to top weight CHEWOREE, back on soft ground for the first time since scoring at Windsor in April and only 2lb higher in the weights.
