Red Inca won in this grade at Haydock last month before disappointing at Plumpton but may not be able to give 9lb to JONNY DELTA. Jim Goldie's charge has improved since finishing just behind the top weight at Warwick in February and can reverse that form after a morale-boosting victory over course and distance last month. Cool Baranca has slipped to a decent mark and could figure if recapturing her best form but Kirkaig and Signalman look vulnerable on heavy going following a year off and Cavite Eta was pulled up on his latest start in November.
