A couple of these share similar profiles. Peace Seeker and PICTURE DEALER have been thereabouts of late without success and the handicapper has given both a chance by leaving them on the same mark despite recent placed efforts. However, the former hasn't won since 2011 so the tentative vote goes to Gary Moore's charge after his latest second at Windsor. Noverre To Go drops back down a grade and the recent York winner can figure along with Commanche and My Son Max, who hinted at a return to form last time. The Strig won at Brighton last month but this is much tougher despite having to suffer only a 3lb rise.
