Yaakooum is penalised for last week's win at Ffos Las, but drops down a grade and could make another bold bid. Lingfield winner Gavlar failed to cope with 6lb extra back at the same track last time but Flying Cape will be taking advantage of his slide down the weights before long, judged on recent placed efforts. LAW KEEPER (NAP) opened her account at Carlisle on only her second start. James Tate's filly won with a stack in hand and can go in again with further progress expected on her handicap debut.
