Saucy Cat scored over 1m3f here last week but she'll do well to hold off the attentions of runner-up COURTESY CALL under her penalty. The latter was having his first start since November on that occasion and is fancied to turn the tables on better terms today. Third placed Tectonic also re-opposes on more favourable terms and should be thereabouts again, while Foster's Road isn't out of this dropping down a grade after his latest fourth at Lingfield. Recent Southwell runner-up Bountiful Catch could prove best of the rest as her breeding suggests she'll stay the longer trip.
