Not an appealing 'getting out stakes' but NALEDI has been in fair form under both codes in recent months and latest placed efforts on the level put him in here with every chance off what looks a feasible mark. Ishismart made an excellent return to action at Leicester when only going down narrowly in handicap company on his first outing since late 2009. Hopefully, she doesn't bounce and she'll be a player here if not doing so. Folkestone winner, Steady Gaze will be looking to show that his recent surprise success under today's pilot is not to be filed in the fluke category, whilst Jocheski is another to consider despite shouldering topweight.
