Blue Deer and Manomine have something to prove over today's distance but there's plenty of others with claims over the trip. Lytham is one of them as he's stepping up a grade for this but Having A Ball makes more appeal as he drifts back down toward a winning mark. Landesherr is capable of scoring at this level but Safwaan is up another 2lb despite a below-par effort at Lingfield last time. Formerly with Sir Michael Stoute, TENURE makes his handicap debut after a comeback at Lingfield for his new yard in January. He gets the tentative vote to improve over this extra couple of furlongs with Ryan Moore on board for his only ride on the card.
