Harlequin Striker finished in front of Whitehall when third at Windsor though Ryan Moore’s presence will likely ensure the latter comes in for support. Illusional struggled in a higher grade at Chester last time but was placed at Newmarket before that while Glendun finished a lot closer at Newbury last month and is back on a winning mark. But PINNATA was having his first outing of the year when third at Kempton last month and Stuart Williams’ charge may prove the one to side with in an open affair with that run under his belt.
