A handful of these have already been allotted handicap marks and MONSIEUR LAVENE boasts the highest rating. He finished third over track and trip in November and won't have to improve much on that to come out best. Coiste Bodhar has been placed here but has 10lb to find with the selection on today's terms while both Katja and Rosie Prospects drop back to the minimum trip for the first time. Apophenia ran well at Southwell on her debut and may get involved with improvement expected.
