Connor King has been on board for all of SIGN FROM HEAVEN's three runs and his claim will be invaluable. David Wachman's charge had the well-regarded and subsequent winner Hurryupharriet behind at Naas and that form should prove good enough for this. Candy Apples has come up against some smart performers and competed with distinction. In receipt of 11lb from the selection he looks certain to make his presence felt while Hilltown Gal has followed her Down Royal maiden victory, when Ealian Aibrean was well beaten, with two very good efforts in tough nurseries so is another to consider. The remaining pair have a bit to find.
