URBAN KODE would be slightly better off at the weights with today's rivals in a handicap but his superior form should be adequate compensation. He's been placed in all three starts since last month's victory over Memorabilia, who has since gone on to record a hat trick. Today's opposition have yet to win a race between them, though Beating Harmony did go close at Kempton on his penultimate start when he had Ad Vitam four lengths behind. Polly Holder is hard to fancy given her recent poor form.
