Sula Two came out ahead of Kings Troop and Shesa Bear in a novelty race for jump jockeys here last time and how that will translate back under normal race conditions is anybody's guess. KATHLEEN FRANCES makes more appeal as she was beaten only a head over C&D in July and this looks an easier task. Course regular Reggie Perrin wasn't beaten far in fourth over track and trip last time and Rythmic bounced back to form at Newcastle on her latest start. Both make more appeal than Ela Gonda Mou and Beat Route, who were placed over shorter trips recently.
