Courtland Avenue arguably has the best form in this modest end to proceedings, having chased home Millibar over the trip at Bath last time. He has the weight to match, however, while Seventeen Seventy and Ooi Long have shown their best over 5f so far. FICELLE is hardly a confident selection but she does have a win to her name and one of her best recent efforts has come over this trip. A repeat of her staying-on fifth over 5f at Bath latest may well suffice here, though a market move for For Shia And Lula after a break would be significant.
