Scary Movie complicates matters as he won easily at Kempton on Monday but was engaged to run at the same track yesterday. He's sure to figure if taking part but a speculative vote goes to THANE OF CAWDOR. The latter could only manage third when sent off favourite for his reappearance at Kempton but should be better for that outing and can make amends. Mr Chocolate Drop and Apache Glory have place claims and Sinchiroka would figure with a repeat of January's win over track and trip, though he's 5lb higher today.
