Considering he missed the break, IT'S A PRIVILEGE was far from disgraced when runner-up on heavy ground at Lingfield last month as he was trying to give the winner 8lb. This looks his big chance to get off the mark. Captivity won at Wolverhampton in February but lacks consistency and wouldn't want the ground too soft while Monymusk needs to bounce back from a shocking run at Windsor last time. Light Zabeel has scope, however, and has been taking on decent company though the assessor has done her no favours on her handicap debut.
