Opened his account for new stable at Kelso in October and by no means disgraced in a higher-grade handicap at Carlisle last time. 1 lb lower now and should make his presence felt.

Left tame Newcastle effort behind when notching eighth chase success at Wetherby last month. Gave it a good shot when third over 30.6f at Perth (good) next time and this drop back in trip will help.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

Cases can be made for the majority of these. Preference is for BAFANA BLUE, who did the job well at Wetherby on penultimate start and his recent effort in a Perth marathon was highly respectable. The 10-y-o remains on an attractive mark. Bootlegger arrives here in good form and is a much-respected main danger, while William of Orange also enters calculations.

Betting Forecast

7/1 Exit To Where (Fr), 14/1 Tanarpino, 11/2 Bafana Blue, 12/1 Cooking Fat, 9/2 William Of Orange, 22/1 I'm To Blame (Ire), 15/2 Court Dreaming (Ire), 11/4 Bootlegger (Ire)
