Not Rigg had an easier chance at Kempton last month but returned a losing favourite once again and KEENE'S POINTE looks a decent alternative. He's having his first start since September but his earlier second at Salisbury is the best piece of form on offer and John Hills' charge may be up to landing this on his return. Both Laudation and Irish Dream looked backward on their respective debuts in the same maiden over C&D with the former coming out best while Limoges showed nothing on his introduction and newcomer Mighty Mata makes no appeal on breeding.
