It was only back a year ago that KAFEEL was winning comfortably here over a mile off a seven-pound higher mark. He was in fine form last winter when wearing headgear, his recent form falling off a cliff without it. He gets a visor today for the first-time, and a significantly better showing can be expected. A three-time course winner, he is the selection at an each-way price. Maazel broke a losing runs stretching back to 2016 when scoring by a neck over course and distance recently. Whether he can gain back-to-back successes remains to be seen. Dark Magic was nearest at the finish over six last-time, beaten just over a length. He too can figure.
