Difficult to recommend any of these as My Mate Les failed to build on a narrow margin defeat at this track when well beaten at Kempton last time and, though Prickles produced a better effort on his latest outing, his only win in 28 starts came over 1m6f. Ad Vitam also has a poor strike rate but is on a winning mark and racing back over a more suitable distance, while it would be no surprise to see Omega Centauri improve on her handicap bow. But the token vote goes to another unexposed sort in HOT TUB, who showed a bit more at Kempton last time and should appreciate this longer trip.
