Who Owns Me has gone up 10lb for winning at Wetherby four weeks ago but shouldn't be far away again. Promised Wings continues his tumble down the weights but has yet to show any improvement for it but Georgian King must go on the short-list. His latest run was in a jumpers' bumper and he'd earlier finished second at Exeter and Kempton. Frizzo should be approaching peak fitness now after a couple of runs but the handicapper has left BRACKLOON HIGH on the same mark as when a staying-on third to Upswing over course and distance three weeks ago. Richard Johnson looks the ideal partner for Brendan Powell's thorough stayer, who gets the nod.
