Agiaal has been handed a 7lb rise in the weights for dead-heating with Enthusing at Haydock but he's progressing nicely and should give a good account. My Freedom slammed Enthusing on his racecourse debut at Nottingham and though subsequently beaten at Doncaster he ran green and should know more this year. Honest Deal easily landed a Hamilton maiden and pulled too hard when beaten at Doncaster. He can do better as can the likes of Nicola's Dream and Delaney's Dream, who are progressing and at the right end of the handicap. YOUHAVECONTROL is the one to be on, however, as he looked a nice prospect when landing a Thirsk maiden but wasn't given a chance to show his true form at Haydock as he stumbled in the early stages and was denied a clear run at a crucial stage.
