THE SIXTIES has the ideal low draw and his latest efforts at Yarmouth and in a nursery at York suggest he's the one to beat unless there is something useful amongst the newcomers. Whistling Buddy was beaten at long odds-on in soft ground at Brighton after a promising debut at Goodwood and today's quicker conditions will be in his favour. Whatwehavewehold looks a likely improver after finishing behind the selection on his Yarmouth debut while Complexity cost 60,000gns and is out of a German two-year-old winner so has to be respected on his debut.
