Upholland couldn't cope with a higher mark at Wolverhampton last time but Tree Of Grace should strip fitter for his third at Kempton. Jaahiez, successful at Lingfield before going down narrowly at Wolverhampton, and Tarrafal, are others who are fit from the all-weather and Dream And Search should do better this year but WESTMINSTER could outclass these. The top weight only won a maiden at Southwell in December but has a cracking pedigree and it will be disappointing if he can't translate his form to the Turf. Grevillea may be best of the rest.
