African Broadway's third to Well Refreshed at Lingfield in December looks better now than it did at the time and he still has a bit of scope over fences. But BENNYS MIST was still travelling well on the heels of the leaders when falling here three weeks ago and, providing that hasn't affected his confidence, he can make amends today as the handicapper now appears to have the measure of Armedanddangerous. Red Rouble is interesting, however, as he only found Marie Des Anges too good over a shorter trip here earlier this month and is probably fairly treated at present, though is hardly a model of consistency.
