Master Cardor Visa deserves a change of luck but is still edging up the weights. Minella Bliss will strip fitter for his run at Chepstow while Gilded Age has had a run on the Flat since winning at Plumpton, though is hard to catch right. AHEAD AHEAD was the subject of a gamble back over a longer trip at Taunton last month and wasn't beaten far. Losses could be recouped here as he can race off the same mark and is preferred to Zelos Diktator, who has disappointed at Towcester since beating Master Cawdor Visa at Stratford.
