Full Speed has carried huge weights on his two latest starts and will think he's been let loose from this position in the handicap. He's on the short-list as Alan Swinbank doesn't waste journeys but connections of Peintre D'Argent must have been dismayed when the mare was raised 12lb after easily landing an apprentice contest at Newbury before finding 1m6f just beyond her at Musselburgh. The lightly-raced Isobar should have more to give this season and is one to note in the betting but it's INCENDO who gets the nod as he is almost guaranteed to run his race and produced another sound effort behind Leader Of The Land at Doncaster.
