The hugely disappointing Cloudy Dawn and Fakenham runner-up Eliades Run are among five carrying more than their allotted weight in this. Presenting Junior must have every chance of following up a recent victory over 2m5f here and makes more appeal than Maple Valley Gale, who has yet to win under Rules, and Rose Dobbin's pair Sierra Victor and Everylasting but WINSTON CHURCHILL looks a threat. He's been steadily improving and a repeat of his latest third at Ffos Las would see him bang in the firing-line in this grade.
