Farquhar, All Talk N No Do and Bureau were all beaten last time having been raised in the weights for earlier wins. It remains to be seen if the same fate awaits MINDUROWNBUSINESS, who is up 5lb for scoring at Epsom last month, but this looks slightly less competitive so David Simcock's charge gets the nod. Lady Pimpernel's win at Sandown last season came in heavy ground while L'Orfeo raced for Andre Fabre in France last year and represents a new yard on his first start since September. Tanseeb finished second at Sandown last month but ran has badly either side of that.
