Windpfeill capped recent improvement when pipping Wise Hawk on the line at Fontwell last month. He must be fancied to follow up despite a 6lb weight rise but we're going to give MISSIONAIRE one final chance to utilise his undoubted ability. He was second off a 4lb higher mark at Plumpton last season and still keeps showing occasional glimpses of form on the Polytrack. Si Bien might stay on into a place but the others have little to recommend them on recent form.
