SENESCHAL carries a 6lb penalty after returning to winning ways with a win over 6f here last week. He's still well handicapped on his best form and this longer trip will be no problem for the C&D winner. He can follow up at the main expense of Bold Ring, who has been holding her form well since scoring at Brighton in July, while Kai Mook has the past form to figure and should come on for her recent return from a lay-off. Fedora has a shout a having won at Kempton last time, but Pipers Piping appears to have gone off the boil.
