WHEN IN ROAM readily brushed aside previous winner Clondaw Hero over course and distance and John O'Shea's filly can shrug off her penalty to follow up. Clondaw Hero's yard run newcomer Shantou Tiger and, as he's related to winning jumpers Bobowen and Top Brass, he's respected while Cloud Brook has already won between the flags, as has You Too Pet. A Tail Of Intrigue only found one too good at Southwell last month so also warrants a second look.
