Big Sylv usually runs her race but that hasn't been good enough since she scored at Kempton in January. Karate is capable at this level but is hard to catch right while William Van Gogh is worth noting in the betting off his current mark. Flag Of Glory never threatened last time but won an amateurs' race here before that beating John Potts. The latter had also finished second to CHOSEN FOREVER over track and trip before that so Geoff Oldroyd's charge gets the nod to go in again as he's won off much higher marks in the past.
