Ebraam has every chance at the weights but that was the case over 6f here last time when he could only manage fourth with Master Of Disguise a couple of places in front. The latter is closely matched with Lucky Art on October's running over C&D. WHERE'S REILEY has a bit to find on today's terms, though Leonna Mayor's claim evens things out a little and today's apprentice was on board when Alastair Lidderdale's charge went close in a handicap at Kempton last month. A repeat would be good enough to land this as the remainder look to be facing a tough task.
