Chevise and Rambo Will have proved best on the all-weather so far, while Alpha Delta Whisky's C&D win came with some cut in the ground and he has something to find on earlier form with Manoori. The latter is 6lb higher for his victory at Nottingham last time but should still figure, as should Riverdale after a good effort at Haydock recently. BLESS YOU makes her handicap debut having won her a maiden over 6f at Warwick last month. Henry Candy's filly shouldn't be too inconvenienced by the drop back to this stiff 5f and she gets the vote.
