EENY MAC has delivered both career successes at this venue and both have arrived this season. He's suddenly discovered a rich vein of form, showing a good attitude both times, and is taken to complete the hat-trick despite a 10lb hike for those victories. Strictly on the book, Cottam Donny should reverse placings with the selection on their running here in early June but Mel Brittain's charge disappointed here last time. He'll be a danger to all if putting that modest effort behind him. First Class Favour has claims after her recent course success, whilst John Quinn's hardy veteran, Violent Velocity, should rarely be omitted from calculations. Richard Fahey's unexposed maiden, Moorside Magic, returns from an absence and should receive a market check.
