Mcconnell was third over a shorter trip here last week after winning at Southwell but may have stamina issues. Frosty Secret won over 1m3f at Yarmouth in June but has hardly raised a gallop since while Hendry Trigger was flattered by his latest third in a Ffos Las maiden, though did finish ahead of the headstrong Drummond at Chepstow previously. SPECIAL REPORT is back in the right grade and arrives off the back of a second over 1m4f here last week. A repeat of that effort may well be good enough.
