West End Lad will need to improve on his latest fourth over track and trip to get involved and MCMONAGLE is preferred. The latter finally showed some improvement for his slide down the weights when runner-up at Ripon last time and can go one better here racing off the same mark. Lisa's Legacy also went close at Kempton last week and she can figure while this is easier than Imaginary World's latest task at Doncaster and John Balding's mare could make her presence felt.
