Shasta Daisy had a good chance at Leicester yesterday so she's unlikely to line-up. But that doesn't make things any easier with three others representing powerful yards. Frankie gets the leg-up for the Hannon team on Exchequer, who ran well in all three starts on Turf last term. Twin Point was sent off favourite at Kempton in December though never threatened, but INTERMEDIUM found only one too good at the same track last year. The Godolphin colt gets the nod on his return with Foxrod looking best of the rest.
