Recent Chepstow winner Tanforan has a poor strike rate on the all-weather and Ryedale Dancer has done all his winning on Turf so far, including at Newcastle last month. Fortunate Bid has finished a bit closer of late but a token vote goes to CHEERS BUDDY, a close-up fourth at Musselburgh last time and a previous winner on Polytrack. Rasselas is looking to take advantage of his slip down the weights and Avon Supreme won over C&D on her penultimate start and is another to consider.
