Tim Easterby saddles Heroique and Jamboree Girl, with preference just for the latter who has had ten races to date, all over the minimum trip. Kommander Kirkup ran a shocker at Thirsk last time though he was impeded at the start but Southwell winner PENNINE WARRIOR ran his best race to date on Turf at Redcar last time and looks the one to be on. Centre Haafhd won at Carlisle last month and didn't get the clearest of runs at Pontefract last time so should go well in a tight little race. Red Forever is only 3lb higher than his only victory and could prove a threat.
