Talented Kid won't have been easy to assess after easily winning a Windsor maiden on his Flat debut. He could be well handicapped but is still giving weight to last month's course and distance winner Albaqaa, who also has a good 5lb claimer on board, and the three-year-old TATSILU. It's the latter who gets the nod after returning to winning ways in a competitive claimer at Newbury last time - he won over 6f here earlier in the season. Webbow is undoubtedly well treated nowadays but seems to reserve his best for the Polytrack while King Of Jazz has gone off the boil.
