GREGORI doesn't have the easiest of tasks raised 8lb and upped in class today. But he made all over 6f here to score by four lengths last time and a similar effort should see him go close again. Trending is usually thereabouts but 12lb higher than his earlier win at Chepstow and Excellent Aim has looked high enough in the weights since landing a double at Brighton. Dark Lane and Never A Quarrel are others to consider with the latter helped by a claimer's 7lb allowance.
