SAAHEQ returned from a year off the track to score readily at Doncaster last week and providing the dreaded 'bounce factor' doesn't play a part, connections could make hay while the sun shines under a 6lb penalty. Three Little Birds has been in fine form of late and the recent Bath winner is respected from just 3lb higher. Porti Ferro was a beaten favourite when last seen but has been running well this term and warrants a place on the shortlist along with the well treated Kasbah.
While stall 9 isn't ideal, SAAHEQ otherwise has plenty going for him. Indeed, he made an absolute mockery of his mark last week at Doncaster where he was returning from a lengthy layoff and tackling this trip for the first time. This doesn't look as competitive and he is hard to oppose under a penalty. Kasbah, last year's winner Operative and Roundabout Magic can do battle for minor honours.
