Cape Of Hope should go close back in plating company but has 10lb to find on today's terms with INKERMAN. The latter is not the most consistent but chased home the higher rated Tee it Up Tommo in a claimer at Lingfield last month. Henke won an easier seller than this over track and trip last time but only just got the better of Chanceuse and the latter is better off at the weights today.
