Entrance looks too high in the weights and so does Urban Kode, who also has a bit to find with Imaginary World on earlier running. The latter looks to have a solid chance after finding the progressive Memorabilia too good on her last two starts, but it was only a lowly claimer that Geordie Iris won last month and she'll find this more difficult. SCHOOL FOR SCANDAL has been given a break since his third to the promising Yaseer at Kempton in December where he gave the impression that this longer trip would suit. He gets the vote on his handicap debut.
