All of these can be given a chance especially Jodies Jem, who got every yard of the mile trip at Kempton last month to record a double. Another bold bid looks likely but AZMA is just preferred. She registered a cosy win over track and trip on her debut but unfortunately Conrad Allen's filly won't start 25/1 again to follow-up in this. Club House just got the better of Staffhos last time but it could be a different outcome over today's longer distance while the speedy Hillbilly Boy has something to prove stepping up to a mile for the first time.
