A penalty for last week's win at Pontefract sees Teetotal upped in grade as he bids for hat-trick. Lastchancelucas is preferred as he's moving in the opposite direction after an improved effort at the same track last time. Sejalaat represents last year's winning yard but was expected to do better at Goodwood and Shrimper Roo also let down supporters when last of seven at Ripon having gone close on his previous start. The latter gets first-time blinkers today but TIME AND PLACE gets the nod to come good again. He can be forgiven his latest defeat in much better company at Newmarket and should prove more at home in this grade.
