What's For Tea did actually win over course and distance last year and this is generally her time of year.

Deux Etoiles won over a longer trip at Huntingdon last month and may be improving but BENNY THE SWINGER has also been in decent form lately and, back over hurdles after a good second over fences on good ground at Kempton, gets the nod as few of the others leap off the page as likely winners.
