Honey Of A Kitten was ridden positively at Wolverhampton last time and was only caught close home. He finished more than four lengths ahead of joint favourite Conducting and should be thereabouts again. Assizes has his sights lowered but has been woefully out of sorts in recent runs and Multifact was beaten six lengths in a seller at Ripon last time. SUNNYBRIDGE BOY was second in a Pontefract handicap in the spring and also ran well in a better race at York next time. He's been a bit disappointing since but a repeat of that earlier form would suggest he's the pick of the weights in this and Robert Winston is an encouraging jockey booking.
