PINEROLO and Jonathan England could be a winning partnership in this opener as the six-year-old's neck second to Grandad's Horse at Haydock followed hot on the heels of a cosy win at Carlisle. Enfant De Lune carries a penalty for last week's success at Ffos Las but is still preferred to other recent winners Majestic Mayhem, Outrageous Request and Cavite Eta. Grandioso is still a maiden but was travelling like a winner when falling at Hereford last month and can't be ignored. Civil Unrest could also play a part if bouncing back from a couple of below-par efforts.
