Changing The Guard and Liscahill Karella both disappointed when well backed last time. Wogan seems a light of former days while this is a different test to the race won easily by Kayfton Pete at Chepstow last week. Gougane was raised a massive 18lb after winning a weak race at Sedgefield but there are possibilities about See The Legend and The Wayward Lord appears to be improving. Drumlang hinted at a revival last time but RUBY VALENTINE won off a higher mark at Stratford in May last year and was doing her best work at the finish over 2m at Wincanton earlier this month. She can get back to winning ways today.
