BOROUGH BOY is only rated 52 but that's higher than any of today's opposition. He arrives on the back of a second over track and trip and should be opening his account with a similar effort. Busy Bimbo and Mid Yorkshire Golf have a bit to find with the latter on latest running but Stoneacre Hull has a shout back in maiden company. Kerfuffle looks best of the remainder though the newcomer Lieutenant Nelson would only need to be of average ability to get involved in this.
