No recent winning form to go on but TENESSEE has been threatening to score of late with a string of placed efforts. His only win so far came over C&D and he's slipped down the weights since. Evergreen Forest won over a longer trip here last season and will have come on for his recent reappearance while Highlife Dancer won over 1m5f at Bath in September although he's 5lb higher today. Having A Ball and Frognal have claims on their form over shorter distances.
