Judicious carries a 6lb after getting off the mark at Beverley last week but this won't take much winning and he had a bit in hand that day and plenty of scope for further improvement. Preference, however, is for SINATRAMANIA, a very easy winner over C&D two weeks ago when Rub Of The Relic was back in third and Kathlatino seventh. Tracy Waggott's charge is 9lb higher today but the fourth in that race, Prince Rhyddarch, won at Hamilton last week so the form looks solid. The others have plenty to prove at present though Kyle Of Bute may be capable of running into a place with Hanagan on board.
