Veteran Dom D'Orgeval has his sights lowered a little and could play a part, though usually needs a stiffer test of stamina. Railway Rico makes his debut over fences while Olympian Boy and Daneva are usually worth opposing, but the booking of Richard Johnson for KIAMA catches the eye and Ron Hodges' mare gets the vote. Her winning form under Rules is on a faster surface but she handles soft well enough and her proven stamina could be an asset here. Cypress Grove responded to a visor to beat The Clyda Rover at Fontwell last time though is 6lb higher now and Tuskar Rock is also high enough in the weights but the handicapper has given a chance to Lady Karinga on her return to action.
