KIJIVU has run on the Flat since last being seen over hurdles and has won off a higher mark over today's course and distance - this looks within his compass. Goochypoochyprader is probably high enough in the weights now but is usually thereabouts and preferred to Freddy's Star, who is only a plater, and top weight Bellosguardo. Candlefort Lady was still beaten 40 lengths when third at Plumpton last month but winning chaser Rosoff isn't without a chance and should reward each-way support.
