This is easily the best race on today's card but it's complicated by the fact that recent course and distance first and second, Lean On Pete and Follow The Flag, were due to renew hostilities here yesterday. One or the other would have a penalty to carry in this if successful. In the circumstances, we'll come down in favour of PRESBURG who is still relatively unexposed on the all-weather and probably just needed the run when second at Kempton earlier this month, though he's gone up a couple of pounds since. Strike Force looks as though he is starting to feel his age but Musnad is potentially well handicapped and makes more appeal than stablemate Calaf, though he's yet to reach the frame on an artificial surface. One Scoop Or Two is closely matched with Lean On Pete and Follow The Flag on the form book but was beaten a head when favourite here last week and is upped in grade now.
