This is probably even less competitive than the first division. Dan's Quest was second at Chepstow last week but was flattered to get within four lengths of the easy winner. Blue Sea Of Ibrox is regularly beaten in sellers and Eddy hasn't shown much so far. PENNIES AND POUNDS hasn't raced since runner-up over course and distance in December but is only a pound higher and was at least showing progressive form when last seen. Julian Smith's mare can shrug off her absence to score.
