Party Line showed little over 7f last year but showed she wanted a much longer trip when just failing to hold Cape Safari over 1m4f on soft ground at Leicester. This stiff climb to the finish will play to her strengths and she looks certain to get into the shake-up. Sygnature had shown some potential last season and was fancied to make a winning return to action at Redcar but disappointed though the firm ground may have been against him. Travelling was always likely to do better in her second season so her victory at Wolverhampton was a plus but this can go to DORRY K, who was always going well and quickened up nicely to score on ground with some give at Newcastle. She's only been raised 3lb and Dean Heslop's 5lb claim is a massive bonus.
