No recent winning form on offer but OUTLAW TORN ended last year with three victories at this track and finished a close-up fourth over a trip short of his best at Lingfield last week. Back on a winning mark, he gets the nod ahead of Do More Business, who has been running well without success over shorter distances but has yet to prove he stays this far. Supa Seeker went close at Kempton last time but is still searching for that elusive first win while The Noble Ord recorded his only win so far in 2011, though he's slipped down the weights of late.
