Trip Switch continues to struggle despite tumbling down the weights while Menadati has a shout off his current mark but is too unreliable to have much confidence in. Fonterutoli was winning for the first time since 2010 when beating Teth over course and distance and may figure off a 3lb higher mark but a 4lb rise proved beyond Wolverhampton winner Lieutenant Dan back at the same track last time. STRATEGIC ACTION got his head back in front at Kempton last month and Linda Jewell's charge gets the vote to follow up given Amber Moon's recent second came in a seller over a shorter trip.
