JWALA's close second to Saturday's Palace House winner Sole Power at Doncaster last year would be good enough for this and she will have come on for her reappearance in a Listed contest at Bath where she led for a long way. Confessional wasn't far behind in that Doncaster event and is well up to this at his best while Face The Problem progressed really well last season and Kieren Fallon gets on well with him. Masamah is yet another who was behind at Doncaster but is generally thereabouts at this level and has to be respected.
