Canadian Run scored easily over track and trip on his latest start but that was back in September and he's been raised 9lb. SCOTTISH GLEN has the more recent form having landed a double over course and distance at the end of last year. A hat-trick looks on the cards for Patrick Chamings' charge despite Soaring Spirits pushing him close last time. A dual winner at Kempton, Camachoice needs to find a bit more off his current mark and The Great Gabrial is 6lb higher than when scoring here in November. Naaz was beaten only a length despite finishing fifth over 1m2f recently while the enigmatic Indian Jack has claims on his best form.
