Jack Luey won twice as a three-year-old but struggled off this mark at the back end of last season. Steelcut has more to do than when winning a Wolverhampton claimer earlier this month and Northern Dare hasn't won on turf for almost two years. Cyflymder is potentially well treated but has shown nothing in two runs this term so the vote goes to FREQUENCY, who has remained in good form since landing a double at Lingfield and Redcar last month and has a nice berth in stall three.
