The Hannon team have won a couple of recent renewals and Equitania has to come into the reckoning though she failed when odds-on favourite at Newbury last time. Tough Lady is also worthy of consideration dropping back in trip after a spin over 7f at Chester but Captain Blue's earlier victory came in a lowly seller at Ripon and he needs to improve. RISKY RIZKOVA opened his account at the first time of asking over 5f at Bath last month when getting up in the final strides. This extra furlong will suit on that evidence and he's taken to go in again. Baltic Gin looks best of the rest despite her inconsistency.
