LUSCIVIOUS had his Musselburgh win handsomely franked this week and is fancied to win at the main expense of Onceaponatime and Brynfa Boy. The son of Kyllachy won easily up in Scotland and the runner-up has since diddled up in a competitive handicap. A 6lb penalty won't be enough to stop him if in the same mood and he should run a big race. Efistorm is a course and distance winner and this well-handicapped horse has a good record at this time of year, Lujeanie is consistent, whilst The Jobber should come on for his latest run at Kempton. Onceaponatime is a very consistent gelding and he comes here in great nick but his turf form is not as strong and hence he races off a lower mark today. Rocker should be fitter after his recent comeback on very heavy ground at Folkestone, whilst Brynfa Boy has really progressed well over the winter and still looks fairly handicapped. Make My Dream is a course and distance winner, whilst Green Lagonda needs a market check on this return to action for a yard in good form. Ivory Silk is yet another to consider given his yard are in good form and his jockey is good value for his 7lb claim. A tricky handicap to solve, however preference is for recent winner Luscivious.
