Eased markedly in grade and dropped in trip, INTENSE FEELING can get back to winning ways in this claimer ahead of One Penny Piece. The latter has also been taking on much better company but hasn't raced since the end of August. Sheacheval has hinted at ability here and could make the frame while Rose Buck may be open to further improvement but the others face a stiff task at the weights.
