Blue Destination scored at Musselburgh last week but has more on his plate here while Amazing King won at the same track last month and should be thereabouts again. Gordonsville has improved over hurdles since last seen on the Flat and Bollin Greta is not out of this with a recent pipe-opener under her belt. However, TEPMOKEA is only 2lb higher than when winning at York last term and was only beaten a couple of lengths despite finishing eighth in a tight finish at the same track on his comeback. Elaine Burke's charge can take advantage of today's drop in class and return to winning ways.
