After landing a couple novice events, Themilanhorse was sent off favourite for his handicap debut at Fontwell but never looked like winning. He may do better here after a lay-off but SIBERIAN TIGER looks to have the superior form anyway. He stood little chance in a Listed handicap last time but had been placed in similar company to this on his previous two starts and Evan Williams' charge is the one to beat on those showings. Full Of Joy disappointed off today's mark last month having won at Fontwell earlier and Royale Knight also needs to improve off his current mark
