Course and distance winner CAPTAIN KENDALL failed in his bid to land a hat-trick when fourth over 7f at Lingfield last time. However, it may have been down to the longer trip rather than a rise in the weights and he gets another chance in this. Lucky Mark had Lady Prodee behind when scoring here on his latest start and should confirm running while Fortrose Academy finished ahead of Belle Bayardo and Rambo Will when third at this track last month and is another to consider. Saunta is lightly-raced and makes most appeal of the remainder.
