There was cut in the ground when COMPTON BIRD scored with a bit to spare over track and trip last week. She can defy a penalty and follow-up in this similar company. Sutton Sid and Smokey Oakey have plenty to find with the selection and so does Chasin' Rainbows on earlier running at Kempton. Hawk Moth has a shout if lasting home over the longer trip and Aminah may figure back over today's distance judged on her earlier placed effort at Lingfield.
