Tweedo Paradiso, who won at Carlisle last month, might appreciate the longer trip but needs to settle better. Radio Nowhere has never fulfilled early promise but is now tried in blinkers.

INSIDE KNOWLEDGE is only a tentative selection as he has a modest strike-rate. But he's been running well enough in similar races lately to get involved again.
