Last time out winner Swainson looks open to further improvement while Highland Homestead needs to be respected given a weight for age allowance but it's the form from ISNTSHELOVELY's last outing that appeals the most. Brendan Powell's runner wasn't disgraced on her last effort when beaten into third by subsequent Fred Winter winner Silk Affair. While the form of the stable is of a concern the before mentioned form-line you can't ignore especially off what looks a good mark here. Swainson improved for handicap company last time and should have won by more than a neck after hitting the last. It could be then that his rating rise of six pounds is more than fair but the lines out of that contest have been weak. Highland Homestead was a little disappointing in what¿s turned out to be quite a warm novice race last time but the result of his penultimate start is much more promising when not too far back from Triumph Hurdle runner-up Walkon. He is also allotted a weight for age allowance here and looks ultra-competitive on these terms. You could also make a case for Spider Boy L'Homme de Nuit and Petrus De Sormain but their form isn't as strong as the selection who goes by the name of Isntshelovely.
