SURROUND SOUND should have no problem taking up a good position from his low draw and can come out best. Tim Easterby's colt found only one too good at Newcastle last time and makes more appeal than Ella Motiva, a promising third on her debut at Thirsk. That looks stronger form than Mandeville's fourth at York though the latter is open to improvement as is Inherited, who was well beaten at Southwell on his introduction. White Coppice is a newcomer to note and may well finish ahead of stablemate Mirlo Blanco.
