A winner over jumps, Maid Of Silk has only raced a handful of times on the Flat but was tailed off at Wolverhampton last week while Flamenco Flyer has failed to beat a rival in a couple of outings at the same track. Bivouac scored here in 2011 but hasn't been seen on a racecourse since 2012 so this looks easy pickings for HONOURED. The latter landed a double here in November and is dropped in class having made the frame in three Class 4 handicaps since then.
