Lord Kenmare looked on the way back when scoring here earlier this month but didn't run up to anywhere near that form under a penalty five days later. Our Manekineko won here in April from just 4lb lower and though a bit in and out on Turf this summer he looks capable of bouncing back to form and finding the frame. HOPPSAN hasn't had much experience and was making her track debut when coming with a late run to snatch second behind Valley Queen three weeks ago. She looks certain to improve again and should go one better. Table Forty Six has won on Turf and over hurdles but never in 16 starts on the all-weather. Hilary, still a maiden after 19 career starts, should be winning soon judging by her two recent run on this track.
