Momkinzain has been sent off favourite in his last three starts but is probably high enough in the weights now. Clarion Call is struggling to get his head back in front and was due to run at Exeter yesterday while Breeze With Ease has been well beaten in his last two starts. Deny won at Sedgefield in August but was beaten 21 lengths off his new mark at Southwell so we might take a chance on the returning LETTERPRESS. He's lightly raced for his age and has gone well fresh in the past. Significantly, he's also John Wade's only runner here today.
