WHITSTABLE NATIVE scored at Brighton in between a couple of modest efforts on the Polytrack and should be thereabouts again here. He's preferred to Ereka, whose victories came on the all-weather. King's Future has yet to win on any surface but Jonnie Skull pops up at this level occasionally and could be worth second look while Gazboolou was second off this mark at Lingfield last month and 6lb lower than when successful at Wolverhampton just over a year ago.
