Shirley Teasdale gets on well with Lisa Williamson's mare Chester Deelyte and the partnership was beaten less than two lengths over course and distance last time in a similar contest. Peter Grayson's pair Dingaan and Vhujon both have a chance at the weights while Cheyenne Red won over course and distance a year ago off a 4lb higher mark, though hasn't shown much since. BLUE NOODLES hasn't won since 2010 but went close off higher marks on the Turf last summer and hinted at a revival when fourth over today's course and distance earlier in the month. He looks the pick of the weights today though recent Lingfield fourth Exkaliber may be capable of better.
