Neither Watergate nor Gee Dee Nen have shown much lately but both have a chance at the weights on their best form. Sablazo has two ways of running but could also play a part and makes more appeal than Owner Occupier and Tchang Goon, the latter racing from 6lb out of the handicap. CHESTNUT BEN started a short-priced favourite on both occasions that AP McCoy rode him last season, winning at Hereford just over a year ago. He's probably needed both runs this term and could well come back to form here. Lady Willa is 3lb lower than for her last success but stopped quickly at Lingfield last week.
