Quarton is probably best watched on his return while Hot Prospect continues to disappoint over timber. OVER CHURCH ROAD is also a maiden but was second in this race 12 months ago off a 2lb higher mark. He can go one better this year ahead of a recent course and distance second Forjoethepainter and Roscommon third Gretzky. Vision Du Coeur is only a five-year-old and is lightly-raced so may be open to more improvement than most.
