The veteran Jonny Ebeneezer scored over 7f here last week. That was his first win since 2004, so he's not difficult to oppose here under a penalty. Replicator had Final Rhapsody back in third when winning over C&D recently but is not certain to confirm the form on today's revised terms and preference is for MIND THE MONARCH. Roger Teal's sprinter scored here last month but has failed to run up to the same level in a couple of starts at Lingfield since. This looks easier and he can return to winning ways.
