A low-grade lottery for which the market may be the best guide. Having won earlier at Kempton, Sir Rodneyredblood turned in a shocker on a return visit having been supported but he’s well drawn here. Rebel Redemption has been fairly consistent and a visor is added here so John Quinn’s raider goes on the shortlist but we’ll take a chance on SWEET SERENADE as she missed the break and then met trouble in-running here last month when making her handicap debut. Joint top weight Leg It Lenny should also be thereabouts.
