This is a bit more competitive than it may first appear but we're sticking with FULL SPEED, who has been in terrific form and won well under a big weight at Newcastle after scoring on the Flat at Musselburgh in March. High Ville should go well under a penalty after getting off the mark at Exeter and Takaatuf won at Sedgefield at the 18th time of asking. Halifax continues to disappoint, however, while Electric Tiger has gone up in the weights again since finishing second at Newton Abbot. Fair Bramble's second at Chepstow was her best run son far but more is needed here.
