Surf And Turf looks high enough in the weights now while Schelm isn't getting any younger, though is only a pound higher than when second at Uttoxeter last month when Cross Of Honour finished tailed off. VUVUZELA may look a bit of a long shot but would have been placed at Wetherby two runs ago had he not fallen at the last and a race like this looks within his capabilities. Indalo Return is lightly-raced for his age and could be best of the rest.
