Sitting Tennant was easy to back and took a heavy fall on his chase debut at Musselburgh last month. He is sure to have had plenty of schooling since but this looks a decent contest for the track with LIGHTENING ROD sure to be popular having chased home Sam Lord over a shorter trip here earlier in the month. He had the more exposed Catch Bob well behind that day and should have no trouble confirming the form. Points winner Cloudy Dawn should do better now tackling fences and looks the pick of the remainder.
