RHYTON clearly benefited from the step up to 3m at Bangor last time, drawing clear of his three rivals in the closing stages. Donald McCain's four-year-old is 10lb higher in this more competitive contest but John Kington again takes off 3lb and a follow-up looks on the cards. Rannoch Moor carries a 7lb for Sunday's Uttoxeter success but is another heading in the right direction, while King Benny came back to form at Newton Abbot last time. Tin Pot Man still looks to have too much weight, however, while Tarvini is still below his best but is on a very reasonable mark nowadays.
