This looks a little more competitive than the first division though John Ferguson has decent prospects of a double with Creekside, who won on his debut at Catterick and pulled too hard when beaten subsequently at Musselburgh. He looks a tricky ride, however, unlike SUNNY LEDGEND who did nothing wrong when runner-up to Carrigmorna King at Newbury and may have won in another couple of strides. He might stay on too strongly for his rivals here. Clarion Call has hinted at ability and Dj Milan and Leath Acra Mor should improve as they gain experience but may only be playing for places here.
