Mokaatil carries a 4lb penalty for his win at Epsom 10 days ago but will be 6lb higher from next week. Stone Of Destiny is quirky but only a pound higher than his last winning mark while Atalanta's Boy is something of a course specialist, though over 6f. Tone The Barone is on a roll but 9lb higher than when last successful on Turf. RAASEL rattled up a five-timer in the autumn but was only fifth off his new mark at Musselburgh on his reappearance, behind the race-fit Fine Wine. Mick Appleby’s charge was drawn on the outside, however, so that was a pleasing effort and he may yet have more to offer. Clarendon House didn’t make his debut until June last year but still managed to win four times, though this looks a stiff task under top weight.
