Hassle made a very promising debut behind subsequent Meydan winner Last Fighter at Nottingham in October but those who finished close behind haven't won a race between them. DAMBUSTER, who is a half-brother to six useful winners, was unfancied at Sandown earlier this month but showed up nicely for a long way and with that under his belt can improve enough to take this. Ducab finished in front of him but had the benefit of experience while Markktag will have come on for his run here a fortnight ago and better is expected. Pomology cost 250,000 dollars and is one to note on her debut.
