FERDY was beaten only a head over C&D earlier this month and he gets the vote with a decent amateur on board. Boudoir went close on the Polytrack last time but is returning from a two-month break and See Clearly could prove a bigger threat as he won one of these events at Thirsk last month and went close again back at the same track last week. Haadeeth makes a quick reappearance having finished fourth at Kempton on Wednesday while Portrush Storm has a penalty for his recent win in a lowly handicap at Chepstow.
