Richard Hannon has a fine record in this and is doubly represented this time. Constantine has been a little bit unfortunate so far and still looked inexperienced over 6f here last time and the drop in trip should suit. Richard Hughes has chosen Speed The Plough who was disqualified from second on his debut when his rider failed to weigh in correctly. Beaten a length by the promising Excel's Beauty at Nottingham subsequently, he should prove the pick of the Hannon duo though there are reasons to believe PENSAX LAD will have his measure. He made his racecourse debut in that Nottingham event and was only a length behind the runner-up so with that experience behind him he can reverse the positions and take this. Minley showed up nicely on his debut at Ripon and looks best of the remainder.
