There was little between My Lord and Speak The Truth over 7f here last time though the latter can come out best back over today's trip. However, both have a bit to find with Waabel on earlier running, as do Waterloo Dock and Chjimes, and Richard Guest's charge can go close once again. HIGHLAND HARVEST has been struggling in handicaps since landing a C&D double last year but, dropping down to this level, he may just find enough to get his head back in front and gets the vote. Marie's Fantasy and Arabian Flight have been in decent form of late but will need to improve if they're to figure in this company.
