BLACK CADILLAC took a step forward with a cosy win at Kempton last week and need only repeat that effort to follow up, despite a penalty. Whipphound finished ahead of Strictly Pink at Warwick last time and had earlier beaten Cape Of Storms when over fifth over C&D, form which also gives him the beating of Powerful Pierre and Consistant. Vhujon posted a better effort at Kempton last time and can also figure while Full Shilling scored over C&D in October and could go well on his reappearance.
