Hazzard County goes well for an apprentice and has claims on February's win over C&D, but hasn't raced since March. Monday's Leicester winner Steed has to race off a much higher mark back on the all-weather and Call To Reason looks a bigger threat having gone close at Haydock on only her second start of the year. We Have A Dream and Mac Gille Eoin have proved better over 6f so far so a chance is taken on JANOOD. He won a Listed event over today's trip last year and, with headgear applied for the first time after a good effort over 1m1f at York recently, can make it a hat-trick of wins in this race for Saeed Bin Suroor.
