Flow Chart was winning for the first time since 2009 when scoring here last month but should be thereabouts again off only a 3lb higher mark. Very First Blade had to wait nearly two years before winning for only the second time when landing a race over track and trip on his penultimate start but he's 7lb higher today. RYEDALE DANCER won here in October and competing off the same mark today, it may be his turn again. Ishetoo posted a better effort last time and Blue Noodles is usually thereabouts without actually getting his head in front.
