Captivity's second over C&D in October is by far his best effort in four outings to date so a good run from him would be no surprise despite disappointing at Kempton last time. REI D'ORO looks a safer option, however, as he showed improvement to finish third behind Lancaster Gate at Kempton last time and is facing distinctly moderate opposition today. Ma Kellys could prove the best of the rest after a debut fifth at this track three weeks ago given Time To Dance was beaten 13 lengths when third on his first start, but the remainder have yet to show any promise so far.
