Daddy Warbucks has done his winning over 7f while Sweetnessandlight recorded both of his victories on the Fibresand at Southwell and Polytrack winner Hikma has been below par on turf of late. Fine Altomis needed 1m2f to open his account at Hamilton and Athletic has yet to score, though he finished closer at Bath on his latest start. With doubts surrounding most of the field, a speculative vote goes to HURRICANE MAX on his handicap debut. He steps up in trip for the first time after three outings over 6f and this longer distance looks sure to suit.
