KNOW NO FEAR is the tentative pick in this fiendishly competitive affair with Radiator Rooney and Bishopbriggs as the dangers. The drop back to six furlongs looks to be a very positive move and with Tanley recently upholding the form of that Kempton success, we are happy to row in this evening. Radiator Rooney hails from the resurgent Pat Morris yard. He had looked held off 55 so this step up to a mark of 60 is no easy feat. Bishopbriggs made all to score at the course last week. Watch the market to see how confident connections are of a follow up. Interchoice Star attempts to graduate out of plating events into handicaps. Don Pele has an away day from his regular haunt of Lingfield Park. Only A Game is exposed as ordinary though has not been given too tough a time of it by the handicapper. Know No Fear has plenty to like about him in the confines of this race and we offer him up as our selection on this instance.
