CHELWOOD GATE has slid down the weights and wasn’t beaten far when third at Lingfield a fortnight ago. He can race off the same mark today and is preferred to Rock Icon, who has been thereabouts at Lingfield since scoring at Brighton back in August. Top Offer won over track and trip in November but was behind Joys Delight over a longer distance here last time and both have a shout in this while D'waterside is another to consider off his current mark.
