Baraweez landed the plumb draw in stall one when going to Chester last time, well handicapped yet on the back of twenty two consecutive losses he rather made a mess of the start before powering home late in the day to score a little cosily. Officially three pounds well in today you have to suspect connections are attempting to strike whilst the iron is hot and given the yard have been amongst the winners and his confidence ought to be high, a chance will be taken on him following up at decent odds. Cape Byron is the potential dark horse and though he was ultimately disappointing when last seen he had earlier created a favourable impression, his hard fought victory at Ascot last term certainly hinted at plenty more to come. William Haggas hit the winners board here yesterday and is represented by Wetherby Hunt Cup winner, Original Choice. Penalised only three pounds for that success here it would be no shock if he ran well once more, however, the two previous times he has encountered going with firm in it he has flopped badly.
