The first three in this last year all had a low draw but high numbers are usually favoured here on the sprint course when there is some give in the ground. Mickael Barzalona was on board Kylladdie when he won at Kempton in October and the partnership is reunited here. Sunny Side Up is usually thereabouts and Dartrix came to hand early last season and can't be ruled out. KLYNCH proved his well-being when quickening clear at Southwell 11 days ago on his reappearance. He has another 5lb to carry but stall 12 looks a good draw and he should take all the beating again.
