A tight handicap so a 6lb penalty for his recent win at Wolverhampton makes Drawnfromthepast's task that much harder. Muhdiq won't need to improve much on his latest second at Kempton to come out best but I See You has gone up another 4lb for finishing second at Bath last time. Rebecca Romero has claims in this company but MAC GILLE EOIN may be ready to take advantage of a slide down the weights as he's thrown in on his old form and did a lot better last time.
