Whether to give Revaader one more chance is the leading question in this opener. Mark Gillard's mare was travelling like a winner when coming to grief three out at Exeter last month and deserves a change of luck. But she lacks scope whereas REMILUC has only had two career starts and should find plenty of improvement for the switch to the Nicholls yard. The French import gets the nod as though winning pointer Sail By The Sea only found one too good on his hurdles bow he will surely find this too short after a lengthy lay-off.
