Question marks hang over all runners and WHATABOUTYA is a far from confident selection. However, he's down to a workable mark and wouldn't be the first from the yard to do the business in the spring months after a sizable break. Market support would increase confidence. Take A Mile has developed the infuriating habit of finding one or two too good, but he looks the most likely to run his race and has plenty of solid efforts to his name around this unusual circuit. Play A Cord looks another possible as she arrives here on the back of just the two chase outings, including a course success, so it's reasonable to assume that there's more to come over the bigger obstacles.
