Chosen One bids to follow up last year's success off an 11lb higher mark but the ground will be much softer this time and he's no certainty to confirm running with the third Tuibama. Here Now And Why was only seventh last year and is hard to win with but there are possibilities about Chloe's Dream and Richard Guest's pair Lord Buffhead and Captain Scooby. Flash City also has claims but CADEAUX PEARL will be making a bee-line for the stands' rail from his outside draw and has been given a real chance by the handicapper back on Turf. He was second in a Class 4 handicap at Musselburgh around this time last year off a 22lb higher mark.
