Order Of Service went close over track and trip on his penultimate start and will be in the shake-up once again with a similar effort. Megamunch hasn't raced since winning on the Fibresand in August last year while it's been over a year since Ripon winner Brooke's Bounty last competed. Tectonic is preferred to Polar Forest off his current mark but the vote goes to PUSH ME, just nosed out of it at Redcar last time and racing off the same mark today.
