CAPE OF HOPE landed the odds over track and trip last week with the minimum of fuss. He's likely to start a short price to defy a penalty here and can follow-up. Bosham opened his account at Kempton last time and appears to be the main danger unless Exotic Guest rediscovers his best form as he drops down in class. Knight Charm has slipped down the weights but deservedly so as he has yet threaten in three starts this year.
