Less than a length separated Forward Feline and Aldo over C&D last month when the former came out on top. They both look likely to be in thick of things again today but KAMMAMURI is given another chance. He didn't appreciate a trip to Southwell last time but had gone close behind Cyril The Squirrel here before that and looks to have every chance on that running. Bold Marc returns from Deauville, where he ran a couple of respectable races, while both Mutajaaser and Classic Descent posted better efforts last time.
