Richard Fahey has trained three of the previous five winners and today's representatives all have a chance. Fantacise has tumbled down the weights and Right Touch scored on his handicap debut at Redcar last month. Khelman won his maiden by four lengths at Yarmouth recently and makes most appeal of his yard's runners but a chance is taken on MUNDAHESH. He landed the odds at Wolverhampton in October with the minimum of fuss and is taken to make a winning return. Line Of Reason has claims stepping back up in trip while Steelriver, George Rooke and Unknown Villain all ended last season with maiden victories and are others to note.
