Nobody could begrudge POWERFUL AMBITION a first success over timber after a number of decent efforts in much better company. He gets 14lb from the hat-trick-seeking Swatow Typhoon and that should be enough for Danny Cook's mount. Isla Pearl Fisher has won six times over fences and stays well. He might be able to run into a place, though Almond Court has been placed six times over timber and might have a say in proceedings.
