Giantstepsahead scored on fast ground at Yarmouth and is upped 6lb. But he's lightly-raced for his age and not out of this while Coillte Cailin went close to recording her first win when third at Haydock last week. Reflect slips further down the weights and can figure but LIVING LEADER has also tumbled down the handicap and he gets the nod after a second at Warwick on his latest start. Prolific on the Polytrack, John Potts has yet to win on Turf but Ptolomeos made the frame off today's mark at Ayr last time and should go well.
