Whenever stays well but, along with Elegant Olive, finished behind Call At Midnight over C&D last time and Richard Phillips also runs STOP THE SHOW. Richard Johnson rides the latter who will appreciate the slower surface having failed to quicken from the last when third to Heezagrey over track and trip in August. Halucha isn't without a chance in this grade and Manadam could also figure if fully wound-up, though was only fourth to Whenever at Warwick in March. Future Dominion is another with recent C&D form but he's 3lb higher now and needs more if he is to open his account.
