Kohlaan will backed to complete the hat-trick after victories at Warwick and Haydock. He's only been raised 3lb for his latest success but FREEPORT finally fulfilled the potential he showed last year when dead-heating with Aussie Reigns on his reappearance at Windsor. The third has franked the form since and Kieren Fallon can steer him to success here ahead of the unexposed Endorsing and Leitrim Pass. Krupskaya won at Thirsk last month but this is a much better contest while Nordikhab continues to disappoint.
