There's not much recent winning form to consider. Silver Dragon showed he was still improving by winning at Uttoxeter last month and is raised 8lb for his trouble. But CATCHING ON came good at Wetherby earlier this year and Maurice Linehan's allowance reduces a 9lb rise in the weights. He gets the vote to continue winning ways. Oorayvic finished closer when placed at Catterick last time and Florida Quays posted her best effort so far when third at Stratford. Willpower has yet to threaten though showed signs of improvement last time and is not easily dismissed for the Henderson yard.
