Revani is feared following is second at Kempton but the drop in trip is a bit of a worry on this sharp track. Purple 'n Gold is back in form but no certainty to confirm Kempton running last month with Tenby Jewel while Easily Pleased keeps finding at least one too good. HONOUR SYSTEM couldn't quite peg back Minella Reception at Southwell last time but was clear of the third and the winner ran well off a higher mark at Aintree on Friday. John Ferguson's top weight might have too much pace for these.
