BLOODSWEATANDTEARS was sent off favourite at Kempton last time but could only manage a modest fifth. He should do better in this less competitive affair and Bil Knight's charge gets a tentative vote. Total Obsession could only manage fourth here on Friday having recorded a shock win at this track before that with Indian Violet behind. The latter just got the better of Lieutenant Dan on his latest start and that pair are closely matched in this but Greek Islands will need to step up on his previous efforts over a mile if he's to figure.
