GREEN MANALISHI has been keeping good company of late and just failed to hold off Baby Strange when dropping down to this level over C&D three weeks ago. Kevin Ryan's charge can go one better here with Feelin Foxy liable to set a proper pace. The latter had Billy Red behind when third at Lingfield last time and another bold bid from the front looks on the cards. Garstang is a shade high in the weights but can still make the frame and Absa Lutte has been in better form of late and could also figure.
