Wellingrove and Lunar Deity both carry penalties for recent successes and Storming makes more appeal upped only 2lb for scoring at Windsor last month. Investment Expert came up short on his handicap debut at Newmarket though that hasn't stopped the handicapper raising him another 2lb. The assessor now looks to have caught up with Cono Zur and Fazza was well beaten off today's mark last time. PARADISE WATCH opened his account at Salisbury three weeks ago beating a subsequent winner by a couple of lengths and Luca Cumani's charge is taken to make a winning handicap debut in this.
