DHHAMAAN ended a long losing run over C&D last week. He may well have a few pounds in hand off his current mark and can defy a penalty. Kielty's Folly is another veteran sliding down the handicap and he showed some signs of a revival over track and trip last time but Coastal Passage never looked like holding on to the lead when runner-up here on his latest start. Essell went close over a longer trip under today's apprentice last month and could make the frame again along with Son Of May.
