STOIC BOY was beaten only a head in a maiden race at Kempton last month and makes most appeal of these now handicapping for the first time. Autumn Tonic has tumbled down the weights and could bounce back at any time but Rialto Magic was well beaten at Chelmsford recently having won at the same track before that. Encapsulated has won twice this year but looks high enough in the handicap now while Indastar was not beaten that far despite finishing only sixth at Redcar earlier this month.
