Honour The World was second in this last year off a 5lb higher mark but showed nothing afterwards. Molon Labe's last two wins have been in sellers and he looks too high in the weights now while Molaise Lad is also stepping up in grade but there are possibilities about improving Worcester scorer My Lad Percy and Lean Burn has a chance on these terms. TRIP THE LIGHT is starting to edge down the weights but has been holding his own in better company and looks to have a decent opportunity here with Conor Shoemark taking off 7lb - he gets the nod.
