Four recent winners to consider but CLUB HOUSE makes most appeal. He landed a higher grade handicap over C&D on Saturday and should take care of today's rivals with a similar performance. Pairumani Prince is another chasing a hat-trick off a 6lb higher mark after scoring in similar company last month. He has every chance but 7f winner Tilstarr has a bit to prove over this extra furlong, though he does have the measure of Man In The Arena on latest running. This is tougher than Walter White's recent win in a seller and he'll do well to stage a repeat.
