Fast On has had a recent spin over hurdles and recorded a string of placed efforts on Turf before that while Mountrath has claims on his debut for a new yard having gone close for Gary Moore at Wolverhampton last month. However, a speculative vote goes to WHATYOUMAYCALLIT, fourth ahead of Doonard Prince over 6f last time but beaten only a head over C&D on his penultimate start. Ocean Drift could figure on his earlier second at Gowran and third reserve Sophies Echo has a shout if sneaking in.
