This looks between Above The Stars and SAGA LOUT at the weights. Twice a winner over the minimum trip including course and distance, Tom Dascombe's charge may just edge it. The former's winning run came to end in handicap company last week but is not easily dismissed back at this level while Red Cape did well to separate a couple of higher rated horses at Hamilton recently and he can figure with a similar effort. Steelcut and Coconut Kisses look up against it on today's terms.
