A wide-open handicap with the speculative vote going PROHIBITION's way. He only just failed to score at Lingfield a week ago and with Kieren Fallon replacing an apprentice, it seems connections think he's capable of winning off his current mark. Black Coffee has the past form to figure and there's little between him and Fibs And Flannel on latest running while Cane Cat has been threatening a return to the winners' enclosure of late. Ostentation and Count Ceprano were both placed last time and also have claims along with Ishikawa.
