Ring For Baileys has a shout off his current mark but Shawkantango is 6lb higher than when scoring here earlier this year. He wasn't beaten far at Windsor last time while Beverley winner Avon Breeze went close again on her handicap debut over 6f at this track in September. Roy's Legacy won at Kempton in the same month but is 7lb higher today and Above The Stars has failed to figure since scoring at Pontefract in August. AMADEUS DENTON began the season off a 15lb higher mark and he gets the vote on his all-weather debut, dropping down a grade.
