Commanche Raider failed to take advantage of a drop into plating company last time as did Ingleby Star, who would prefer faster ground. Chosen One is generally competitive at this level and scored at Pontefract last month before having little chance in a better handicap at Thirsk. He looks a threat to all and though Tom Sawyer has been hit with a 6lb rise for his Lingfield success Connor Beasley's claim takes care of most of the extra. HERE NOW AND WHY has run two very good races over the track and trip without winning and, though raised another 2lb, his overall form looks good enough for him to go one better.
