Pyracantha has left Alan Swinbank for Jennie Candlish since scoring over C&D in April. He may just need this and preference is for POINTS OF VIEW. Kim Bailey's charge certainly wasn't winning out of turn over C&D two weeks ago and runner-up Stage Acclaim franked the form with another good run behind Liberate at Worcester on Wednesday. Sunsetten finished behind the selection at Uttoxeter last month but is certainly capable of improving on that effort and is probably the main danger here as Closesthingtocrazy has been well beaten in all three starts over the larger obstacles and both Exiles Return and Home She Goes lack a bit of scope now.
