Plenty with chances in this but CHEERS FOR THEA scored by six lengths here last time and can overcome a penalty with a similar effort. Royal Holiday has done all his winning on the Fibresand including a recent double at Southwell and Outlaw Torn makes more appeal having won two of his last three starts over C&D. Nant Saeson is another recent course winner who can figure off a 3lb higher mark and Sudden Wish has made the frame on her latest couple of outings including when runner-up over track and trip earlier this month.
