Tim Vaughan looks to have found STONETHROWER another good opportunity after he sauntered home to land the odds at Fakenham last week. The drop back in trip should prove no problem against these rivals and he's likely to start odds-on once again. Abayaan could be the one to follow him home judged on his third at Stratford in March when he had today's rival Taylors Secret well behind, while bumper winner Vicpol ran well for a long way at the same track on his latest start. The remainder have shown nothing to recommend them so far.
