RENOIR'S LADY scored at Wolverhampton in October and ran well enough when third over C&D last time to suggest she can go in again. She'll have to reverse latest running with Jackie Love but the latter is a rare winner and Simon Dow's filly gets the nod. Putin has been in better form of late and found only the progressive Brown Pete too good earlier this week while Play The Blues will be taking advantage of a slide down the weights soon and she can make the frame.
