Those near the head of the weights could dominate this handicap. Popaflora has a penalty for beating The Informant at Fontwell but the winning margin was 11 lengths and he's on an upward curve. Nomadic Storm won at Newton Abbot before finishing second at Towcester when Grand Article and Sportsreport were behind. He's gone up a further 4lb, as has CAPISCI for finishing second at Worcester. But Sarah-Jayne Davies' charge was running in better company and could be good enough to go one better here.
