TINGHIR will have come on for his reappearance fifth at Newmarket last month. A couple of winners have already come out of the race and David Lanigan's colt can open his account in this company. Thouwra looks the biggest threat with a fourth at Nottingham under his belt as that's much better form than any of the remainder have so far shown. Finn Mac finished ahead of Big John Cannon when sixth at Thirsk and French import, Confusing, may be capable of better this year for new connections.
