MAN OF LEISURE hosed up under a penalty at Stratford on Saturday. He has another 7lb extra to carry here but looks in such good form that a hat-trick beckons. Rum And Butter didn't do a lot wrong at Fontwell after winning at Newton Abbot and should be thereabouts again while Dormouse was beaten less than a length at Fontwell, though has gone up in the weights again since. Keenes Day has shown nothing since returning from his winter break while Osric isn't the force of old but Ironical should strip fitter for a recent run here and is only a couple of pounds higher than his last winning mark.
