It's not often Roger Varian has a runner at this course but HAVIN' A GOOD TIME has the best recent form. A winner at Lingfield last month, she went close again when third in soft ground at Nottingham last week and gets the nod. Whisky Bravo has done all his winning on the Fibresand and has leading claims on the back of Tuesday's second at Lingfield but Fama Mac will do well to confirm latest running with the selection on worse terms. Steel City Boy is a C&D winner but Pavers Star arrives in better form while Kempton runner-up Littlesuzie is making her belated seasonal debut.
