CHORISTER SPORT is given another chance in this company. He disappointed at Kempton last time when sent off favourite on the back of a narrow-margin defeat at Lingfield, but Willie Jarvis' colt shouldn't be written off just yet. Les Verguettes is harder to fancy as she's not improved as expected and has her first start since November, but Henry Bee wasn't disgraced on his recent debut over C&D and normal improvement should see him thereabouts. How Sweet It Is posted a better effort here last time and Like The Night has gone close over track and trip before.
