Choc 'A 'Moca has sandwiched a Beverley success between finishing tenth of 11 and last of 16 in his last three starts which makes him tough to read to say the least but the percentage call is to oppose off topweight. Legal Bond has been beaten in two sellers this season but a third of 14 behind Mrs Warren at Catterick last time over 7f brings him into the equation. He's a winner over this trip but that success arrived on heavy ground which he's unlikely to face here. PERFECT WORDS is still a a maiden but has been performing with credit and Marjorie Fife is operating at a useful strike rate this term. Raul Da Silva takes off a handy 3lb and that could just swing the balance in the gelding's favour with trip and ground to suit. Lees Anthem and Logans Legend, both dropping in trip, make some each-way appeal.
