Izzthatright won a handicap here on his penultimate start, beating Madamoiselle Bond, and went close again at Chester off today's mark last time. He has leading claims but KAYO KOKO is just preferred. The latter made a winning start over track and trip last month when clear of the rest. Mutafarrej is another to consider after competing in decent maiden races while Steady Major went close at Brighton before a modest effort over 7f at Newmarket.
