Wind Star found one too good again at Lingfield on Saturday and patience has run out with him while today's going is a concern for both recent C&D winners Ostentation and Renegotiate. Border Abby has claims of her current mark after her latest third at Bath but the vote goes to WELSH NAYBER. He's only 2lb higher than last year's win in a nursery at Yarmouth and a recent two-length defeat over track and trip points to a big run today. Lithograph may prove best of the rest.
