C&D winner Clever Omneya saves her best for this track though she'll have to work hard to take up her preferred front-running role from a wide draw. She was third to Norcroft here last time and will do well to confirm running with the second Elusive Warrior, while Amtired is another to consider having gone close over a mile here on his last two starts. However, a tight handicap can go to TENANCY, who scored over C&D under today's apprentice in June and is only 2lb higher today.
