Not the easiest start for punters as several of these would have claims on their best form. Tenancy runs his best races on Fibresand but Sherjawy has won over C&D off higher marks, though not recently. Do More Business has a modest strike-rate and has been racing over further lately so we'll take SLATEY HEN to return to winning ways under Zoe Lilly, despite her also being engaged at Brighton tonight, as she'll be back over the C&D for the first time since scoring here in March if taking her chance. Pharoh Jake is still a maiden and has been beaten in sellers on his last two starts at the track.
