Only a half length separated So Is She and Harrys Yer Man when the former won over track and trip last month. There's likely to be little between them again here and the token vote goes to LYTHAM. He's been in much better form of late with a couple of placed efforts at Kempton and Tony Carroll's charge has won off higher marks in the past. Avon Supreme was runner-up here on her penultimate start and could make the frame once again along with the winless Bygones For Coins.
