Felix De Giles steered NEWTON TONIC on to the wrong course at Lingfield last time and Noel Fehily takes over the reins here. Charlie Longsdon's quirky eight-year-old has the ability to win a race of this nature and, getting 3lb fro Bangor scorer Midnight Macarena, gets the nod. Join The Navy might be improving and easily won a minor contest at Fontwell last time when well backed, while Ballyman responded to a visor to beat Captain Tidds by four lengths over C&D last month though is taking of better opposition today. She's Humble may be best of the rest but will probably find at least a couple too good again.
