Plenty of these have claims and that includes AZAGAL, beaten only a length at York last time off today's mark. But she gets only a tentative vote with so many alternatives on offer. Ansaab has been running well in similar handicaps while Silver Rime made a good effort to follow up a win at Ayr back at the same track last time. Repetition remains in fine fettle but is up in class while a case can also be made for Deauville Prince dropping down in class also having tumbled down the weights of late.
