Rollin 'N Tumblin won this last year off a 5lb lower mark but hasn't raced since April. Belle 'Arte went close at 50/1 over 2m at Kempton in October but returned to her old ways when tailed off at the same track last time. KEEP KICKING failed to figure dropped back in distance on his latest start racing under a penalty for his earlier win over track and trip but Simon Dow's charge gets the nod back over 2m as Descaro still looks too high in the weights, though Poste Restante may figure off his current mark.
