On The Feather has a 7lb penalty for her win at Plumpton but there aren't many arriving here in form. Blackstone Vegas won twice on the Flat after finishing second at Market Rasen in May but recent efforts have been impressive while Flora's Pride faces a stiff task at the weights on her reappearance and the handicapper now seems to have a grip on Rime Avec Gentil. AMAZING STAR is only a pound higher than when successful over C&D just under a year ago. He's fit from the Flat and, as long as the ground doesn't become testing, is fancied to recapture the winning thread. I'm A Gangster may be best of the rest.
