Push Me won a novices' handicap here at the start of the month but has been raised 13lb for his troubles, which seems harsh. Zambezi Tiger hasn't had much racing but doesn't appear to be improving while Hallmark Star usually finds at least one too good and Lucinda Russell's stable jockey Peter Buchanan rides Clondaw Flicka instead. Seattle Drive has travelled a long way for this and has won twice on the Flat this year. With Mikey Ennis taking off 7lb he can't be ignored but supporters will almost certainly get a decent run from the consistent ENDEAVOR again and Dianne Sayer's gelding gets the nod, despite having been raised 2lb since a recent course and distance third. Bogside may be best of the rest.
