KHAZIUM drops into this grade for the first time over hurdles and has the beating of Golden Acorn on earlier running. Brendan Powell's gelding should finally get off the mark against modest opposition. Stan Moore starts off Loyal Master at a realistic level and he could easily run into a place while Neil Mulholland will be hoping his filly Pass The Time can build on her debut success at Fakenham, though she finished behind Camrock Star on the Polytrack last month.
