GONNABEGOOD won last year’s renewal and has scored twice again since. He’s still improving judged on last month’s reappearance when managing to hold on for victory here, despite looking sluggish in the early stages, and Jeremy Scott’s charge can go in again. Lee Side Lady may do better dropping down in class today and Shintori was placed at Fontwell last time. Inspireus slips further down the weights while Stonemadforspeed is back on a winning mark and usually thereabouts at this level.
