Callhimwhatyouwant carries a penalty for last week's win at Southwell. But another bold bid is expected as he makes more appeal than both Another Flutter and Gud Day, who occupied the places behind Temple Lord at Worcester last month. LARKS LAD had an off day over a longer trip at Stratford recently but is only 2lb higher than when landing this race last year under McCoy and a repeat looks on the cards. Tregaro remains out of form and hard to fancy.
