FUJIN DANCER won this three years ago off a 7lb lower mark. He showed he was no back number when scoring on the all-weather over the winter and, as he gets on well with Harriet Bethell, the nine-year-old can rewind the clock today. Pass Muster has got his act together this season and has a chance, despite climbing the weights, but Seventh Sky was under pressure when falling at Newbury and both My Guardian Angel and the four-year-old Town Mouse disappointed last time. Grams And Ounces is potentially well treated but appears to have lost his way.
