RELENTLESS PURSUIT has a hike in the weights to contend with after scoring at Dundalk but still looks to have the best chance. He beat previous winner Bint Dandy easily enough last time and is preferred to Strait Of Zanzibar. The latter beat He's Got Rhythm eight lengths over track and trip last month but never figured off today's mark on his latest start when finishing behind fifth-placed Norville at Fairyhouse.
