Nick Slatter's allowance cancels out a 7lb penalty CLONDAW HERO receives for winning at Stratford earlier this month. He's preferred to stable companion and newcomer Unexpected and gets the vote to go in again. Jayjayrumi made a promising debut in soft ground at this track back in February but When In Roam has the more recent form with a third at Stratford last month to his credit.
