A P McCoy needed all of his strength to keep ROBOBAR going over 3m at Southwell on Sunday so the additional 7lb could be a problem. But today's opposition are hardly world-beaters and a follow-up looks to be on the cards with Maid Of Silk disappointing again at Worcester last month and Brimham Boy usually worth opposing. Solitary Palm races for the first time since scoring over course and distance in May off an 8lb lower mark but could figure if fully wound-up and is the pick of the remainder.
