Oriental Relation won off a 4lb lower mark here in March and finished just behind third-placed Regal Parade over track and trip last time. Dutiful Son is another course and distance winner but is upped in class off a higher mark today and Stunned is also facing a tougher task having only won a maiden race over 5f here last month. CRAZY CHIC returned to action with a win at Wolverhampton when beating a subsequent winner. Marco Botti's charge is taken to shrug off a penalty with further progress expected and go in again.
