Correggio has claims on his third at Sandown in August with a recent run under his belt. Noble Deed could also go close on his return judged on the best of last season's efforts. SIZE has the more recent form with a debut second at Newcastle to his credit. Richard Fahey's charge is expected to improve for that experience and gets the vote to open his account. The remainder have plenty of catching up to do so it would be no surprise if the newcomer Eium Mac got involved on his belated debut.
