The likes of Moynahan, Nazreef and Soweto Star appear to have gone of the boil, but Satwa Laird produced a better effort over C&D last month and Compton Blue finished second at Leicester recently. This looks more competitive, however, and Silverware makes more appeal back over a mile. Santefisio followed-up a third over track and trip with a win at Kempton last time and is 5lb higher today, while Watch Amigo also has claims. A token vote in a wide-open affair goes to MENADATI, who is having only his third start of the season and will appreciate the faster ground after finishing a decent fourth at Chepstow on his latest outing.
