Man Of Steel won at Ffos Las last month but it's never easy defying a penalty in races like this and Peter Bowen's charge may come up short today. FULL THROTTLE was given a nice introduction at Aintree and allowed to come home in his own time once his chance had gone. He still wasn't beaten far and will strip fitter here so gets the nod. I'm Not Telling and Miss H Lewiss were both placed last time but are more exposed than most and winning pointer Keel haul is probably a better long-term prospect.
