Greencroft Lulu, runner-up in her last two outings over the four bends, can go one better at Oxford tonight.

Steve Rayner’s black bitch found Ballymac Messi too good, despite posting a 27.46 mark, and before that had to give best to Follow the Light.

She is dropped in trip for the A5 after three unsuccessful runs over 595m, which should suit her perfectly.

Nick Colton’s Shelbourne Fifi rates the danger.

Pats Cash, who was crowded out at the first bend last time, can get back to winning ways in the A1 over 450m.

Tony Magnasco’s black dog, who has a best clock of 26.81 round here, possesses the early and late pace to come out on top.

Philanimo Bill completely missed the break behind Spencers Lad last week, but can bounce back as he reverts to the two-bend sprint trip in the D1.

It would be a brave man who bets against Maurice Massey’s hound after his qualifying time of 15.14.
