Just The Tip will be more at home in this company having been well beaten in a novice event at Newcastle. Beverley runner-up Ocean Sheridan makes more appeal than River Spirit and Penalty Scorer as he goes handicapping for the first time. Bahango hasn't shown that much progress in five starts but MILLAR ROSE got her head in front at Catterick last time. She beat a subsequent winner so the form looks solid enough and Karl Burke's filly gets the nod to go in again.
