Verdict

Be Kind and Laughing Game will carry more than their allotted weight in this opener, though both are ridden by claimers. Paradise Expected hasn't shown much lately and Days of Pleasure also has a bit to prove but Kap West has dropped in the weights since early summer and must have place claims again. HANDSOME BUDDY is 3lb lower than when a fair second over course and distance and June and showed a bit more over hurdles back here last month. He may just enjoy a fitness advantage over Royaume Bleu so gets the nod.
