Cape York hasn't run since finishing third at Uttoxeter in November and, being a half-brother to staying chaser Mac Aeda, will almost certainly need further in time but Jean De Florette and SALTO CHISCO have both seen action recently and should be fully wound-up. The former, a half-brother to winning hurdler and chaser Howard's Legacy, will almost certainly improve on his third at Taunton but we'll give another chance to the latter. He was a good second on his debut at Uttoxeter and only beaten half-a-length when filling the same position at Market Rasen next time. Trainer Donald McCain also runs newcomer Nefyn Bay while Exclusive Rights and Fly By Knight could improve on their initial runs.
