ANEYEFORANEYE has gone well fresh in the past and her defeat of Carlito Brigante here in September was a pretty solid effort. She still has plenty of scope over fences and may be worth risking here. Chartreux was second over 3m here on Wednesday but may struggle over this shorter trip while Rouge Et Blanc appears to have lost his way. Swift Arrow might have benefited from a recent break but only beat Hazy Tom by a neck over 2m at Musselburgh in December and the latter is 3lb better off now.
