This is tricky as it depends on MASTER OF FINANCE bouncing back to form. He disappointed stepped up to a mile in slow ground at Thirsk last time but his earlier win at Chester is much the best form on offer and he gets another chance. Ffos Las winner Intense Feeling may get involved with an apprentice's allowance in her favour, but Earth Flight is 7lb higher than when scoring here last month and has been beaten since. Chanceuse only won a lowly seller at Lingfield in August and Money Team won a claimer at Catterick back in July.
