In a race of this lowly quality it might just be best to side with recent winning form so last time out success story TENANCY has to get the call. Kieren Fallon's presence on board Shaun Harris's charge is further cause for optimism after the gelding romped to victory last time and although the testing ground conditions may have played a big part in that score he at least comes here in good heart. Richard Hughes is aboard Rebecca Romero and the filly has every chance based on her close up third at Bath two starts ago while Duke Of Rainford is consistent and isn't weighted out of a challenge.
