My Kingdom won over this trip at Leicester on his return to the Flat and is only 5lb higher. Conry is fit from the all-weather, as are Illustrious Prince and Alnoomaas, while anything Serena Brotherton rides in races like this has to be worth a second look and My Son Max won at Southwell last month. KHELMAN was only beaten half-a-length on soft ground over course and distance on his reappearance. He's got another 3lb to carry in this but has a decent lady amateur on board and won at Yarmouth around this time last year. Baraweez and Lothair may be best of the rest.
