Joe Packet has dropped to a fair mark and has gone well here in the past. So has veteran Piscean but it looks as though age is starting to catch up with Tom Keddy's nine-year-old. Ex Ex won twice on the Polytrack earlier in the year but makes his debut on Turf this afternoon. The three-year-old TANZEEL won his maiden over track and trip last July. He hasn't raced since September but that shouldn't be a problem and he can make a winning reappearance. Shore Step was second at Haydock last month and races off the same mark here so can't be ignored.
