Kyle Of Bute went close to following up an earlier win when runner-up at Kempton last time, though he's upped 4lb today. Huzzah won a Class 7 event here and has something to prove over this longer trip, while Tukitinyasok has come up short off higher marks since scoring over course and distance in December. He finished ahead of Katmai River last time and the latter has since posted a better effort when second at this track a fortnight ago. PRIMARY ROUTE didn't look at home on the Fibresand on her reappearance but earlier placed efforts on fast ground give her a chance and David Barron's filly gets a speculative vote.
