Having taken a big drop down the weights, it was only a matter of time before HONEY OF A KITTEN got his head back in front and he duly did so when winning an apprentice race over C&D earlier in the week. A winner without a penalty, he can go in again today at the main expense of Hidden Glory, who is another well handicapped if reproducing his best. Silver Alliance, Mighty Clarets and Postscript are others to consider with preference for the latter as he had McCool Bannanas behind when runner-up here last time.
