Bubbly Bailey was well supported for a seller at Lingfield last weekend but couldn't quite manage it and this looks slightly tougher. Blazeofenchantment was noted staying on over 6f here last time and the longer trip could bring about enough improvement for him to get into the mix but this can go to FAFFA. Tim Easterby's charge didn't show much on Turf but was staying on over 6f at Southwell last time and can make a winning handicap debut. Red Dragon and Subtle Difference have both shown a little potential and it wouldn't take much improvement for either to make their mark.
