Dixie Gwalia has a shout on her return from a layoff and Lisselton Cross was headed at the post at Kempton last time. The latter should be in the firing-line but preference goes to MAJESTIC BREEZE who also went close when finding only Invigilator too good over C&D last month and can go one better with a 7lb claimer helping his cause. Poseidon Grey and Headstight have bits of form that gives them an outside chance.
