BOONDOOMA made all and never looked in any danger over 2m at Fakenham two weeks ago. The return to a longer trip is definitely in his favour and a follow-up looks on the cards as he gets 6lb from Musselburgh scorer Katachenko. Donald McCain's charge may be a bigger danger than either Ueuteoti or Rev It Up Ruby, however, as neither of the latter pair has raced since the turn of the year. Itstimeforapint was third at Ayr last month but well beaten on a return visit to that track.
