The Hannon yard has won four of the seven renewals and Renaissant is likely to prove popular after a debut fifth at Windsor. But EL CHE may prove too good. Soft ground at Newcastle was against her last time but she separated a couple of subsequent winners when third at Newmarket on her introduction and a similar effort should see her go very close. Profitable has some catching up to do but the newcomer Torridonian is worth a second glance with Ryan Moore on board.
