CORRIN WOOD looks to have a good opportunity to open his account. His recent second at Haydock to the progressive Gevrey Chamberlin is easily the best form on offer and he should take this with a clear round. Beauboreen made a promising debut at Bangor last month and looks next best while Big Water has claims on his decent bumper form though he hasn't raced since April. Logical Approach posted his best effort so far at Hexham last time and bumper winner Gonow is expected to improve.
