Tous Les Deux's record fresh isn't astounding and over this short trip he is passed over in favour of SUTTON VENY with Lujeanie considered her main danger. The selection chases a hat-trick of course and distance wins here and looks to have been found a good opportunity. She is 6lb higher than her last win but seems to have blossomed this winter and she can maintain her unbeaten record for Adam Kirby. Methaaly is also a course and distance winner but he looks a harder ride and is passed over for win purposes, whilst Lujeanie also runs this track well and should give his running despite a career-high mark of 81 making life tough. Timeteam has not been flying of late but he hasn't been with his new yard for long and cannot be overlooked despite having plenty to find with Methaaly on their run behind Billy Red last time out. This looks another good opportunity for Sutton Veny to win again.
