Anderton should improve on his debut fourth at Thirsk dropping back in trip along with Ripon fifth Pipers Note. My Claire stepped up on her debut effort to finish fourth at Redcar back in June but it could pay to stick with QUALITY MARK. He may have been beaten six lengths on his debut at Windsor in May by Annunciation but he will have almost certainly improved since then and the latter is now rated 100. Level Best is a half-brother to smart sprinter Utmost Respect and the 190,000gns gelding is worth noting on his debut along with fellow newcomer Gallena.
