Another Flutter has been thereabouts in similar company since winning at Ludlow in April. She's preferred to Easily Pleased, who remains 10lb higher than last year's win over track and trip. Benny's Quest was placed over these fences last season and is 7lb lower today. He's preferred to Templeton and Ted Dolly but MISS TENACIOUS looks the best bet. She followed a second at Taunton with an another good effort behind Boss In Boots over course and distance and the handicapper has given her a chance leaving Ron Hodges' mare on the same mark.
