ABEER finished a well-beaten runner-up to Questionnaire at Chepstow last time but that run looks slightly better now after the latter won again on Saturday. Ed Dunlop's charge gets a tentative vote in this lowly contest. Merrjanah should do better dropping back in trip and In Babylon's third at Kempton back in April gives him a shout. Roodee Queen's two victories this year have been in plating company, however, and this is little better while Loves Theme also only won a claimer last month. Piccoluck looks best of the rest.
