Verdict

A winner without a penalty, Handsome Stranger never threatened Arabian Heights when runner-up at Kempton on Wednesday. But the penalty is applied today, so he's overlooked in favour of KINDLELIGHT STORM. The latter bids for hat-trick on the back of a couple of victories over course and distance and his latest 6lb rise is mostly negated by an apprentice's allowance. Yourinthewill and Attain have both fallen victim to the selection recently and 7f winner Blackthorn Stick is unproven over this far. But Innoko has slipped down the weights and looks a threat dropping back down in trip.
