After 10 starts over timber, My Idea may not have much scope for further improvement though his latest third at Wetherby wasn't a bad effort and better form than On Broadway's second at Perth. Lucinda Russell's winning pointer should relish the step up to 3m however. THREE WHITE SOCKS won a couple of staying races on the Fibresand and was second over 2m on soft ground on the Flat at Newcastle last week. Providing he jumps adequately on his hurdles bow, he could be the one today.
