Vitznau ended a lengthy barren spell with a victory over 7f here last week and although he should confirm running with Divine Rule, he has a penalty to contend with today. C&D winner Ermyntrude couldn't cope with a rise in the weights last time and it was the same story for Aegean King who won here on his penultimate start. Fairy Mist went close in a seller over a longer trip a fortnight ago but preference goes to SHARED MOMENT as she's back on a winning mark and posted a decent effort in a higher grade handicap at Lingfield on her latest outing.
