There was little between Ivestar and Flow Chart at Wolverhampton last time but both were well beaten. Lord Buffhead has a chance on his best form, however, as does Camache Queen. Meshardal was only beaten a length-and-a-half by DOCTOR HILARY over course and distance earlier this month and is 4lb better off but we'll take Mark Hoad's veteran to confirm the form as he's probably the more consistent.
