Almaty Express has a recent win at Catterick to his credit but looks opposable racing off a 13lb higher mark including a penalty now back on the Polytrack. Reginald Claude can be a given a chance off his current mark but WINNIE PERRY has also slipped down the handicap. He never threatened the winner despite finishing second at Lingfield last time but Rod Millman's charge may come out best in this company. Powerful Pierre won a seller here back in April but it's hard to find any worthwhile form among the remainder.
