AJMANY is held in some regard by his trainer. Sent off odds-on but unsuited by the modest pace set at Yarmouth last time where he failed to catch subsequent winner Hasopop, this should be run more to his liking and he can make amends. Bachotheque has gone close twice this month and will be winning soon on that evidence while Burning Blaze ran well on his debut though that was over 7f in soft ground. Medicoe hails from a yard in flying form and can figure stepping up in trip along with Titus Titan while Khelman makes most appeal of the newcomers.
