Push Me has claims back on Turf after going close at Lingfield last time but the handicapper may have caught up with Lord Franklin now judged on his recent defeat at Hamilton. The same comment applies to Tectonic, who had Music Festival back in third at Ayr last month but has been beaten twice since, while Dandarrell seems better over a mile nowadays. MANCHESTAR is getting closer and with more to come after finishing fourth at Nottingham recently, Richard Fahey's charge gets the nod to open his account off his current mark.
