Kie never seems to run a bad race while Kandari had a bit in hand when scoring at Catterick, though the handicapper took note and raised him 10lb. Gallox Bridge still has some scope while Doncaster fourth Prince Of Dreams is back in the right grade and preferred to the exposed Prince Buster. But he has to concede a lot of weight to MORGAN'S BAY. Fred Tett steered the eight-year-old to a first career victory at Leicester eight days ago and again takes off 7lb. He can follow up in this stronger heat off a 6lb higher mark.
