COUL KAT is a pound better off with Devil's Cub for a half-length defeat at Bath. Rod Millman’s gelding missed the break that day and was still showing signs of inexperience in the closing stages so can turn the tables on the winner. Baton and Right Proud look held on the form book but Astapor could be interesting stepped up to a mile and Hungry For Fashion is probably capable of better.
