Ivatheengine won at Windsor back in May but has switched yards since. He’s penalised on his reappearance and SHINE ON BRENDAN can take advantage. The latter was beaten only a neck at Wolverhampton on last month’s debut and the form looks rock-solid with the both the winner and third having won subsequently. The remainder with experience have yet to threaten though better efforts are expected from the likes of Sena and Up To Speed while Lily Like is related to several winners and preferred to both Snowball Jackson and Fuchsia of the newcomers.
