Internationalangel has been well placed to win four of her last five outings including a course and distance double. But the handicapper has had his say and raised her 12lb. Rogue Force has tumbled down the weights and won at Kempton on his second start after wind surgery while Dutch Decoy was narrowly beaten over track and trip on his penultimate outing. ALHAMMAAM was having his first start for Stuart Williams’ yard when third here on his return from a lay-off. He’ll be sharper today and with improvement expected now handicapping, may prove the one to side with.
