Saroque was third at Fontwell on his second start but still beaten 30 lengths. Gymdoli stepped up on his first two runs when second over C&D earlier this month, but Julia Too has failed to improve on her debut win at this track last year and Cheating Tiger may need more time. Ronnie Rhino hinted at ability when third at Doncaster but CRABBIE'S CLOUDY's dam had enough speed to win a bumper and Donald McCain's newcomer could well be good enough to open his account at the first time of asking.
