RAYVIN BLACK stands out here, despite the big field. A runner-up on his last couple of starts, Oliver Sherwood's charge can confirm recent running at Huntingdon with sixth-placed Star Presenter and land this. Breaking Bits was only beaten a length at Plumpton last time and is preferred to Kings Destiny, who has failed to build on his promising debut at Towcester last June. Irish raider Military Bowl is worth a second glance and bumper winner Panache may improve on February's debut effort over these hurdles.
