Henry Bee and Peter Anders never figured last time though both went close on their penultimate starts. Neither have been anywhere near soft going, however, but TRAIL BLAZE finished a creditable runner-up when faced with testing ground at Thirsk in August. Kevin Ryan's colt gets the nod to make a winning return on that basis given the remainder with experience have plenty to find with the principals if they're to get involved in the finish. Twin Ivan could prove the best of them and Liliargh makes most appeal of the newcomers.
