Tee It Up Tommo has won three of his four starts this year but carries a penalty for his latest success at Kempton and this will be his first start here. He might be worth opposing at the likely odds with WHO'S SHIRL, who had form in better company that this on the Turf last year and seems to be staying further nowadays. Canon Law started favourite here last month but only managed third and races off the same mark today. The other pair are even harder to fancy.
