This looks between the two recent winners Diamond Vine and CHJIMES. The former was winning for the first time since 2010 when scoring here last Saturday with Custom House and Memphis Man behind, but the latter seems the more likely to follow-up and gets the nod. Conor Dore's six time C&D winner won over 5f at this track last week and remains on a winning mark despite a 3lb rise. Slatey Hen hasn't won since this time last year but has slipped down the weights and hinted at a return to form in lesser company last time, while Court Applause could run into a place off his current mark.
