A few of these would have a chance if rediscovering their best form. Steuben, Liberate, Miss Topsy Turvy, Shesha Bear and course specialist Hawridge King all fall into that category, while Switched Off ended his losing run over 1m4f at Chepstow last time and comes into the equation. The lightly-raced PRESTO VOLANTE got off the mark at the Welsh track last month and the runner-up had Madame St Clair well behind when scoring at Lingfield subsequently. Amanda Perrett's four-year-old can score again as Honourable Knight appears to have lost his way and Handles For Forks is also struggling at present. Cellist is usually thereabouts and stays this trip but she's probably still a couple of pounds too high in the weights.
