Sylvester Kirk's runners top and tail the field and both have some sort of chance, though Rock Diamond finished just behind Great Crested at Kempton last month. The latter had an alternative engagement on the Polytrack last night however. SOVEREIGN POWER wasn't beaten far off a 3lb higher mark at Kempton two runs ago and lost his chance at the start at Bath subsequently when stumbling out of the stalls. He appears to have the best recent form in this low-grade affair with Penang Power possibly his most interesting opponent having made late headway at Newmarket last time.
