Manolith carries a penalty for his narrow victory over stablemate and previous winner Rodney Tee at Ripon last week with the odds-on Birkenhead back in third. The latter had just beaten BIRDIE BOWERS at Beverley earlier so the form points to Michael Dods' charge coming out best. Insania also raced at Beverley last week but couldn't quite go the pace and probably needs another furlong, a remark that also applies to The Ginger Bullet, but Stone Princess showed early dash at Ripon and should have come on enough to get involved. Itwouldberudenotto may prove best of the newcomers.
