POUR LA VICTOIRE rates the safest option after obliging here last week in pretty impressive fashion. Prior to which he had ran well in defeat behind subsequent hat-trick scorer Until Midnight. Depden is worth a market check on this first run for John Butler but Last Minute Lisa looks the main threat to the selection. Sylvester Kirk's Irish import stayed on quite nicely here last week behind Athletic and a repeat of that performance would put her right in the mix.
