Chancery has decent claims on his third at Haydock last Saturday and stablemate Tetbury is better than his reappearance on the Polytrack would suggest. But both are more exposed than Street Artist, who looks likely to make a bold bid after a debut second at Wolverhampton in March. There should be more to come from Chief Executive with an outing at Newbury under his belt but the vote goes to RENEW. The former Ballydoyle colt went close when fourth over 8f at Listowel in September but breeding suggests he'll show his true potential for Marco Botti over middle-distances this year.
