Shades Of Autumn was second to Lord Landen at Newton Abbot last month and that one's run in the first will be a pointer to the gelding's chances in this. Harris Garden is still a maiden and Got Attitude also needs more despite a couple of recent placed efforts. Egypt Mill Spirit is gradually getting his act together over fences, however, and he finished ahead of Got Attitude at Leicester in February. RED ROCK has been disappointing since winning at Fontwell in October but he has the ability to land a race like this if a first-time visor helps him concentrate.
