Tim Easterby has taken the trouble to book A P McCoy for former pointer BALLYMARTIN KING and the hint should be taken. He's by King's Theatre so should have the pace for this. Baltimoar is a winner between the flags and could be the danger representing the McCain yard as Worcester scorer Henri Parry Morgan has a penalty to contend with and Taxi Des Obeaux was a bit disappointing at Hexham earlier this month while Dante's Frolic was well beaten at Ayr when favourite in March. Clondaw Flicka and Trouble In Paris are other ex-pointers but may need further than this.
