DEVOUT finally opened his account when scoring over today's trip at Lingfield last month. He can only be a tentative selection raised 5lb for this but with doubts surrounding his chief rivals, Jamie Osborne's charge gets the vote. Panama Cat should be winning this year but may come up short on her first start since October and Petite Georgia should also find a race soon but has shown her best form so far over shorter distances. Show More Faith and Lady Niramax have the scope to improve but will need to if they're to have a say in the finish.
