Verdict

BIG LES went through last week's C&D race with authority and ultimately ran out a decisive winner. On that evidence, a 5 lb penalty won't prevent a very bold follow-up bid. Kapono also won last time and is just 1 lb higher, while Erich Bloch could be interesting with easing underfoot conditions a plus.
