Tiermore had recent Exeter winner Shrewd Investment well behind at Newton Abbot around this time last year and isn't out of this. Nowurhurlin arrives off the back of a win at Ascot but looks held by Shrewd Investment on earlier running at Warwick. Warwickshire has recorded back-to-back wins at Stratford and Towcester but this is a stronger heat. FOUNDRY SQUARE has been highly tried this year but ran well behind Rockiteer over 3m here 12 days ago and a repeat of that effort may well suffice today. What Of It and Up To The Mark look best of the rest.
