Sharp Shoes finally came good at Nottingham last month but appears to face a stiff task at the weights here. The battle-hardened Brandywell Boy is dropped into a seller for the first time and should go close but he has ground to make up on WANCHAI WHISPER on their run together behind Ebraam over C&D last month. Peter Hedger's three-year-old has already won twice for Andrew Heffernan and the partnership can come out on top again in this.
