Cooper's Friend and Harleys Max are better known as chasers so are probably best watched. Fit For Fifty was due to run here last night while Teviot Prince hasn’t raced since winning a point around this time last year. BOY’S ON TOUR is a very tentative selection in the hope that a drop in grade and switch back to hurdles will re-ignite his enthusiasm. He is only 2lb higher than when second over fences at Musselburgh in January. Titian Boy has also been chasing and is 0-7 over hurdles.
