These lowly handicaps are usually a lottery and this looks no exception. VHUJON went close over 5f here last week with Brandywell Boy a couple of lengths behind and it could be the turn of Peter Grayson's previous course and distance winner to go in once again. Torres Del Paine has tumbled down the weights of late and Demoiselle Bond wasn't beaten far at Lingfield in December. Both have won over track and trip so could figure if in the mood while Christopher Chua has place claims.
