Golden Firth has been raised 9lb for winning a maiden hurdle here last month when beating Faanan Aldaar, who runs earlier on the card. KHAN TENGRI also scored over track and trip in March but a 7lb rise is offset by a conditional's allowance and he's taken to follow-up in this. Paddy O Dee is another recent course and distance winner and he had Daytime Dreamer back in third. The latter is weighted to reverse running today and may well do so while City Of Doral can also be given a chance off his current mark.
