Foot Tappper posted one of his better efforts when fourth over 7f here last time and Generalyse is more predictable, though has come up short so far and gets first-time blinkers today. Far East, Game All and Transfix were all expected to improve on their respective debut efforts last time but failed so it's worth taking a chance on newcomer POLAR VENTURE. The 60,000gns yearling is a half-brother to a Listed winner and won't have to be anything special to land this on his debut.
