UNLIMITED won a handicap here last time, his fifth win over C&D, and comes out best at the weights today. He should be following up in this company. Orpenindeed posted one of his poor efforts behind the selection last month and is not certain to get the better of Ezdeyaad either. The latter finished third in a similar contest at Kempton when last seen, while Cavitie usually runs his race on the Polytrack but has a bit to find on today's terms. Rum King could prove best of the remainder.
