Prolific winner PLAYHARA was still in touch when falling at Cartmel last month and may not be in the handicapper's grip just yet, though this is another decent contest. Badged has been knocking on the door while Pumped Up Kicks won nicely over course and distance two runs ago, though is 11lb higher now while Morning Time has his stamina to prove. Makhzoon has won his fair share down the years but is essentially a plater nowadays and was beaten in a seller when last seen.
