Vhujon went close over 6f at Wolverhampton last time and Deveze found only one too good over the minimum trip at the same meeting. Both are C&D winners and capable of winning at this lowly level and so is Lisselton Cross. First Rebellion is another with bits of form that could see him figure but a token vote goes the way of SLATEY HEN, a close-up sixth behind higher-rated horses than this in a seller at Lingfield earlier this month.
