THERESNONEEDFORDAT is hard to oppose in his current frame of mind. He recorded a C&D hat-trick with his latest victory last Saturday and, given he won by three lengths eased down, Stuart Williams' charge can defy a penalty. Courageous is slipping down the weights but getting no closer while Amoure Medici has been running well at this track but over 7f. Chepstow winner Lady Bayside has claims if forgiven a poor debut effort on the Polytrack but Kyanight and For Shia And Lula have been placed here recently and look a bigger threat.
