BEAUBRAV continued his upward curve with a cosy win over C&D a fortnight ago when he beat today's rival Tominator. The latter re-opposes on better terms but Michael Madgwick's charge had plenty in hand last time and is taken to confirm superiority. King Olav won a conditions race at Kempton in February but there's a suspicion he may be a shade high in the handicap now, while Magicalmysterytour also looks in need of some respite from the handicapper.
