KRAKA GYM overcame trouble in-running to win over the mile trip at Kempton last time. Giving the impression today's longer trip will suit, Mick Easterby's charge gets the nod to follow up and confirm superiority over Ormer in the process. Frederic Chopin looks stuck on his present mark and needs to dig a bit deeper while Previous Acclaim will find this tougher than the seller at Lingfield in which she finished second last month. Enquiring showed little last year but any strong support on his reappearance could prove significant.
