Rakaan comes out best at the weights as he drops back down in class. However, he found the well-handicapped Polar Kite too good the last time he raced in a claimer and faces a similar type here in TORNADO FORCE. The latter has tumbled 16lb down the handicap since December and, after returning to form at Southwell last week, he can take advantage of what looks a lenient mark. Yourinthewill has more to find though he did beat both Spanish Plume and Alhaban in a seller here last month and the latter has since boosted the form by winning at Lingfield.
