CHAPOLIMOSS bolted up in this grade at Huntingdon 12 days ago. He's had a light campaign and looks capable of defying his penalty against these as he's still getting 14lb from the top three in the handicap. Baile Anrai was a fine second in a Listed handicap at Doncaster in January but never sighted in a Grade 3 at Kempton next time. This is easier but the handicapper has done him few favours. Wiesentraum could bounce back from being pulled up at Ascot as an earlier win over this track and trip has worked out well but it's difficult to have much faith in Hit The Headlines nowadays and the others have a bit to prove at present.
