Plenty with claims in the closing event, including Eurystheus. He's gone close to taking advantage of a slide down the weights on a couple of recent outings and the same comment applies to One Scoop Or Two, a runner-up here last week. Heezararity makes less appeal as it took him 20 attempts to open his account and Bryoness is preferred on her latest head defeat at Kempton. AQUA ARDENS landed a double at Brighton during the summer and, despite having his first start since September, George Baker's charge gets the vote as he seems at his best when fresh from a break.
