Tiger Twenty Two made a promising start at York in soft ground but disappointed on faster going at the same track last time when finishing behind seventh-placed Sir Jack Layden. The latter may handle today's underfoot conditions better and makes more appeal than Fire Fighting, but this can go to a newcomer. Washaar and Chinese Jade are both worth a second glance in the betting and make more appeal than The Kid but the vote goes to BROADCASTER. He's a half-brother to numerous winners and his trainer's good strike rate at this track boosts confidence in his chances of making a winning debut.
