A Little Bit Dusty won one of these events under today's amateur in between a couple of woeful efforts and could figure if in the mood but TENHOO looks the safer option. He also won an amateurs race at Redcar last time and could well follow-up with Simon Walker taking over the reins here. Transfer has a chance on his earlier win at Ffos Las and Pahente landed a double on the Turf at Lingfield last month while Iulus and Seeking The Buck could also go well having run into a place on their latest starts.
