Only 3lb separates the field on handicap ratings but HOWZ THE FAMILY has the edge on today's terms. He returned an easy winner over 7f here last time and should make the weight concession tell stepping back up in trip. Jazzy Lady is proven over the distance having already won twice over track and trip, although Kempton winner Sydney James comes out the better horse on collateral form. Kantara Castle is lightly-raced and has an easier task at the weights than he faced in a claimer here a fortnight.
