Two September selections for Stratford

Two quick selections for Stratford tomorrow.

Rhum goes in the 4.30 following a pipe-opener over an inadequate trip at Ffos Las 16 days ago. Previously Twiston-Davies' charge ran well to finish fourth behind Monsieur Cadou in the Tim Molony at Haydock. He comes to this fresher than all his rivals, with any further rain likely to help the cause.

Just five face the starter in the 5.05 with Bennys Quest the likely favourite as he looks to chalk up his third win on the trot. Giant O Murchu was disappointing on occasions last term so I'll side with Synthe Davis and Tony McCoy.

Rhum (9/2) finished well-beaten in third. Once headed four from home, the game was up. Fairwood Massini (11/8f) held Henry San (5/2) two and a quarter lengths on the line.

Giant O Murchu (7/2) may well have been disappointing last term but he was anything but here, winning very easily. Perhaps connections have found the key... Selection Synthe Davis was sent off 2/1 favourite but was passed by Bennys Quest (5/2) before the last, finishing third beaten some eight and a half lengths.
