None of these are easily dismissed including Olympian Boy, who arrives out of form but has plummeted down the weights. Time To Think has six lengths to find with Ratify on Wincanton running last time but re-opposes on much better terms while Bendant is unreliable but capable of figuring if at his best. Both Entertain Me and BALLYWATT scored over course and distance last time. The former bounced back to form to win by a distance but has been raised 15lb for his trouble while the latter has gone up just 5lb for his defeat of Cruchain and it's Kim Bailey's charge that gets the nod.
