Long Awaited has the call on official figures but hasn't had much all-weather experience and it's a long time since he won. CLUMBER STREET scored at Chelmsford in March of last year, his first start since 2013. He obviously goes well fresh so can gain his second career victory. Come On Dave has won nine races and has been racing in decent handicaps so should make a bold bid to concede weight all round. Bahango isn't out of this as he's had three runs on the track, winning one and finishing second in another.
