Charlie Delta looks a little too high in the weights to challenge although his jockey's claim may assist, whilst the handicapper may also have the grasp of Kate Skate. Only A Game is a course and distance winner but was dreadful at Brighton on his most recent appearance and will need to return to form to challenge. Ride A White Swan won off this sort of mark here in April but was seventh when last seen over course and distance. The vote is narrowed down to two runners who ran together last time and KINIGI is selected to reverse the result with White Shift who was the victor at Kempton last time. Kinigi is in good form and the weights have turned around 3lb in her favour with White Shift for this race. This could make the difference and if getting out well from her low stall can avenge her defeat.
