Kimbali and April Fool will find life easier in this company given they look high enough in the weights in handicaps at present. That also applies to PRIME EXHIBIT, who won a claimer at Newbury last month and makes most appeal in this similar contest. Justbookie Dot Com landed a Wolverhampton seller last time but has plenty to find at the weights and the runner-up Hurricane Spirit may reverse running on better terms. June's C&D winner Sir Mozart and Kempton runner-up Marford Missile are others with a tough task on these terms but Adranian and Fishforcompliments can't be ignored.
