Not much recent form to go on here so Sun Quest will probably be among the market leaders on the back of his second at Wincanton, though is 4lb higher now and hasn't won in more than four years. VEDANI was beaten less than a length over track and trip 11 days ago and stays on the same mark. Tony Carroll's charge is still a maiden but this looks his big chance. Broughtons Bandit and Rocky Rebel look best of the rest on past efforts.
