A few of these have been known to make the running and, with others present who like to race prominently, this could pan out nicely for CLASSIC PURSUIT. He normally finishes with a late rattle as when scoring over 6f at Kempton last time and may pick these off late dropping down to the minimum trip for the first time. Vodka Chaser has claims on her latest second at Bath and Monarch Maid finished ahead of Orient Class when runner-up at Redcar. Thornaby Princess is not without a chance and Tinsill drops back down to a more suitable level having been well beaten at York last week.
