There's no recent winning form to consider and a purely speculative vote goes the way of CHEZ VRONY. He went close over track and trip on a couple of occasions in January. Very First Blade has been thereabouts off similar marks this year and Clary slips a further 5lb down the weights for her return to action. Irish raider Phils Wish has been placed at Dundlak and may be good enough to get involved.
