ONE PURSUIT bounced back to form at Bath last week and won't start at 25/1 today. He gets the vote to follow up under a penalty. Shades Of Grey and Rachel King won this in 2011 and should go close again while Yasir won a claimer in soft ground at Leicester recently and can also figure. Joanna Mason has already won twice on Tapis Libre this year and the latter is another to consider along with Foxhaven and the versatile Highway Code.
