The fact that Licence To Till reappears in a Fibresand claimer after nearly a year off suggests that this formerly useful handicapper has been beset with problems. At his best he'd take this with ease but on this occasion the market may prove the best guide to his chance and he is reluctantly passed over at this stage. Back Burner is only 1-13 on artificial surfaces whilst LEAN ON PETE has two laudable recent efforts to his name around this venue that augur well for his chance now. He may represent a value option against the prolific Stand Guard, who will certainly find this significantly tougher than the majority of his recent all-weather strolls - providing all five declared runners stand their ground of course.
