Four recent winners return to action in a competitive handicap. Elspeth's Boy scored in the same grade over C&D last time and should go close again as it looked a stronger race than the one Call Of Duty won here a week ago. St Ignatius is also facing a tougher task having won at Brighton last time and preference goes to KING ZEAL. He's taking a drop in class after scoring at Leicester on his latest start and makes more appeal than handicap debutant and recent Thirsk runner-up Entihaa.
