DR YES has been a beaten favourite in two of his four starts but has shown decent form, most notably when runner-up to Stencive at Newmarket in July. He may be worth another chance here as likely market rivals Linkable and Pulverize are even more exposed and the latter is now fitted with a hood after finding little when push came to shove behind the selection's stablemate Ace Of Valhalla at Ripon last month. Totalize is also hooded but did have the headgear in place when making his debut on the Polytrack 12 days ago and his breeding suggests this longer trip will suit. The remainder appear to have a lot to find if they are to get involved.
