Lord Nandi has disappointed so far but several others are of interest here not least BIOGRAPHER, who ran a cracker on his debut over 1m2f on soft ground at Windsor. It's not certain he'll last home over this longer trip but is the one to beat if his stamina holds out. The filly Rosie Probert is probably the danger after her debut third at Salisbury, though the booking of Frankie for Lingfield fifth Castilo Del Diablo is interesting and Roc De Prince could be worth following once he gains experience.
