Mick Channon has won both previous runnings of this so Sartori, a half-brother to a 5f winner, is worth noting. Rush is related to the speedy two-year-old Rimth and Fantasy Justifier can include the smart sprinter Tax Free among his winning relatives. El Duque disappointed after a promising debut at Lingfield but that may have been down to the Fibresand surface at Southwell. Better is expected here but it could pay to stick with BEAU NASH. He only found one too good at Leicester on his introduction so Richard Hannon's charge gets the vote.
