Let Me In failed to cope with a 6lb penalty for winning here last month when only fifth on his latest start. He has a couple of lengths to find with runner-up POLAR FOREST on that form and it could be the latter's turn today with Connor Beasley taking 5lb off his back. My Claire has gone close on her last couple of outings here and may find one too good again though she should confirm superiority with Platinum Proof. The rest are hard to fancy.
