Quintain has the scope to do better while Lord Usher made a bright start at Aintree in June before reappearing with a moderate effort at Musselburgh. Pair Of Jacks was only run out of it close home by Neston Grace at Towcester and with progress guaranteed should make a bold bid but this can go to a newcomer and ROXY BEAT fits the bill. John Quinn's filly is related to a host of winners and out of a mare who won on the Flat as well as over hurdles so she should have the pace for this. High Interest is a winning point-to-pointer who should be noted in the betting.
