None of these can recommended with any confidence. Passionate Affair finished closer stepped up to 2m last time but Roman Riches has finished last either side of scoring on the Turf course here. Dire Straits is persevered with over middle-distances, despite looking not to stay the 1m4f at Kempton, so a speculative vote goes to OHIO. She stayed on to take third without threatening the winner when upped to 1m4f last time and there should be more to come from her.
