Fennell Bay looks to be treading water off his current mark, though he's dropping down a grade for this. The Lock Master is becoming increasingly unreliable and was well beaten at Southwell last time while both Calaf and Getabuzz arrive out of form. Harry Buckle was engaged to run at Newmarket yesterday so BRAVEHEART MOVE is the default selection, though he should improve for his recent seasonal debut having ended last year with a win at Newmarket.
