Lean Burn has hit form with a vengeance and can confirm Wetherby running with Beyondtemptation on Tuesday. But an extra 7lb means he is now rated in the 90s, which may be too high. SHORT TAKES may have been a bit unlucky at Catterick 10 days ago and can gain compensation here with further progress likely. Choisan may do better now going handicapping and is far less exposed than Persian Herald and course and distance winner Amir Pasha.
