Bryden Boy's run behind Relic Rock at Wetherby in February was a very good first effort and he only found one too good again at Sedgefield last month. But we'll take a chance on GO CONQUER, who makes his debut under Rules but was leading a Dromahane point-to-point in December when unseating his rider at the last and is now with Donald McCain. Pithivier has shown some ability and newcomers to monitor for market interest include Noble Bell and the Nicky Richards pair Joffrey and Un Noble.
