Diplomatic found one too good here last time having landed a double over track and trip in October. He looks sure to run his race again but the less exposed TRIPLE CHOCOLATE is given another chance. The latter scored over 7f here on his debut but today's step up in trip could bring further improvement from Roger Ingram's charge. Captain Starlight never figured on his handicap debut in July but had won here before that while Commisar scored over 1m4f at this venue in October and has to race off a 5lb higher mark today. Camachoice is a course and distance winner and is another to consider with a recent comeback run under his belt.
