HALFWAYTOCOOTEHILL won't get many better opportunities than this lowly seller. Well beaten in a higher grade last time he'd earlier finished fourth over track and trip with Jebulani and Duchess Of Dreams well beaten and Ollie Pears' charge looks the one to beat on that form. Jomari and Santa Fe Stinger finished down the field over 2m here last time when Jebulani was second while the remaining pair have yet to shown anything worthy of a mention.
