Kevin Ryan runs three and the returning TAHNEE MARA makes more appeal than newcomer Noble Bounty, who wears the selection's second colours and My Pearl, who has shown little so far. The former was beaten only a head at Chester last summer and has competed in better class maidens than likely market rival Come On Dave. The latter ended last season with a couple of placed efforts at Catterick and should be thereabouts at the finish ahead of Ring For Baileys and Bygones For Coins, as neither of that pair has looked like winning yet.
