In Division One of a grade handicap we're concentrating on recent good form and although Lunar Limelight was a winner last time out the extra weight on his back might be telling so instead we like the consistent BESTOWED with Party In The Park also making the list. The top weight status of our pick shouldn't be a concern with just five pounds covering the whole field and after finding just a subsequent winner too good off this mark last time we feel he can go one better here. Lunar Limelight stayed on to just win at Lingfield on his last start. The form has been well advertised with the second going on to score but his penalty might be prohibitive. Party In The Park is consistent in the main and went close under this weight last time so should be in the mix again while Interchoice Star has shown improvement lately and should run another good race. Not a race that will live long in the memory but Bestowed has the form to suggest a bold bid.
