Ready looked suited by very heavy ground at Carlisle and conditions may not be testing enough but Mundahesh appeared certain to be suited by further when staying on over 6f at Yarmouth and looks a big threat. Mission Approved started favourite on his debut at Newmarket and showed enough to be market leader again at Kempton but found Royal Prize too strong. That form hasn't worked out so well nor has the latest run of Herbalist, whose short-head defeat by Shahdaroba is only moderate form. Cape Of Hope attracted good support on his Doncaster debut and better is expected but a chance is taken with AVATAR STAR, who never really got going at Wolverhampton after missing the break but is the type to have made good progress and this may not take as much winning as first appears.
