There's not much between these. Tectonic beat Royal Straight a short-head at Hamilton last month but the latter is weighted to reverse running and may well do so dropping back down in trip. Tectonic then fell victim to True Pleasure at Carlisle and the bottom weight has a penalty for following up at Ayr last time. Queens Revenge is hard to fancy but Jordaura has a chance on his best form. CONO ZUR returned to winning ways in an apprentices race at Haydock last week and given he avoids a penalty, Ruth Carr's charge is fancied to take advantage and go in again.
