Rigadin De Beauchene was outbattled by Mortimers Cross here last month and now has an extra half-mile to cover. He looks vulnerable conceding 21lb to REBEL MELODY, who hasn't really been firing this season but has still shown enough to suggest he can win a race like this back on his favourite track. Plunkett needs to rediscover his best form to figure and is another whose stamina is unproven while Or Sing About reserves his best for Plumpton and needs a quicker surface. Current Climate is a couple of pounds lower than when just beaten over C&D in December but is still a maiden after 11 starts under Rules.
