This is probably a little more competitive than the first division but it's still a good chance for HARE IN A ROUND to open his account. He wasn't beaten far in a couple of starts in the autumn and is unlikely to fail through lack of fitness. Beowulf was sent off favourite on his debut at Fontwell last month but could only muster the one pace. This sharper track may not be in his favour while Mystifiable also failed to quicken when second at Southwell. Land Of Vic is interesting as he's by Old Vic and ran green at Lingfield in January. That looked a decent bumper and he'll know more today.
