Greyhope finished ahead of Asteroid Belt and Captain Baldwin when third on his hurdles bow at Perth and should confirm that running here. Red Tyke was well ahead of Altnaharra when successful at Market Rasen and has won on the Flat since. He'll make a bold bid to defy his penalty while Forester Street will have learned plenty from his first run at Sedgefield. But the latter has a lot to find with FINE KINGDOM on that effort and Brian Ellison's gelding, third at Worcester since, can open his account today.
