Verdict

This looks pretty tight at the weights but HONEY OF A KITTEN is holding his form well. A decent third in a handicap last week, David Evans' charge beat a below-par Yourinthewill at Lingfield in a seller before that and can land this with a similar effort. Twice a winner over track and trip last year, Availed Speaker has a shout with an apprentice's 7lb allowance helping his cause and the Irish raider Syrian is not out of this on his best form at this track, though that was back in 2011. Faithful Ruler is a regular at this level and usually makes his presence felt having won a couple of times already this year under today's claimer.
