Tokyo Javilex is not getting much relief from the handicapper and was still beaten 10 lengths off today's mark at Leicester last time. Cara Court makes more appeal on his recent second over track and trip and Sendiym is only 2lb higher than when scoring at Kelso in October. Hexham winner Have You Had Yours is harder to fancy as he never figured off today's higher mark back at the same track in November so another chance goes to top weight BOCAMIX. He's yet to score over fences but can be forgiven his latest effort in Class 3 company and is fancied to reverse earlier running with Cara Court on better terms.
