Bitaphon scored over track and trip in November and is not easily overlooked. But both Chapellerie and Baltic Prince need to improve on their previous efforts on the Fibresand to figure in this. Dual Polytrack winner Kasbhom may get involved if taking to the surface, though he remains 6lb higher than his latest win at Wolverhampton. Master Of Song has been in dreadful form since winning over a mile here back in August so a chance is taken on LOOK ON BY on his comeback. Ruth Carr's charge won a much more competitive affair than this at Thirsk last year and has experience of the track.
