The consistent Feelin Foxy run well under this burden to place in a better race at Doncaster last time so is very much considered but in what looks a good contest CHJIMES might be the better choice now back at his last winning mark while the unexposed Sirenuse also looks a danger. Best on this surface the pick showed the benefit of racing him on the polytrack last time as he returned to a bit of form when two pounds worse off. It is a slight concern that he is yet to win at this track but he seems to have a good chance under this weight. Feelin Foxy found just one too good in a Doncaster Handicap last time off this rating and with this looking easier he should be a leading player despite still six pounds above his last winning weight. Sirenuse has been knocking on the door off this sort of mark and should go close again with his aptitude for this surface taken on faith while Cape Royal looks guaranteed to run his race again. One of the best races on the card this and Chimjes looks weighted to win.
