LOUIS VEE has been in fine form at this lowly level and landed a course double when beating Ishetoo a week ago. The latter had won prior to that so the form looks unusually solid for this grade and the hat-trick beckons for Roy Brotherton's charge. Flow Chart has finished a couple of lengths behind the selection on his last couple of starts but still makes more appeal than the remainder. Exkaliber has been placed at Kempton and Dear Ben made the frame at this track on one occasion but the rest are easily dismissed.
