What About Carlo took the step up to this trip at Epsom on Derby Day in his stride and comfortably landed a very strong handicap. He has another 7lb this time in an equally tough race and that may just prove too much. Mark Johnston has a good record in the race and is represented by Insaany, the winner of three of his last four including over the course and distance last time, and Torchlighter, up 6lb for his victory in a lower grade handicap at Windsor. Richard Fahey is another doubly represented and Our Gabrial could prove the best of them as he put a couple of poor runs when starting slowly behind him to make most at Chester. Mange All had nothing to beat at Beverley but it was a nice exercise gallop though this can go to MOUNT LOGAN, who reappeared with an emphatic victory in a Goodwood handicap - a 10lb rise may not stop his progress.
