Stag Hill won at Ffos Las on Monday but Jack Garrity rode his first-ever winner on BREAKHEART at Salisbury on Sunday and Andrew Balding wastes no time reuniting the pair here. He has to give weight away all round but is clearly in great heart at present and faces moderate opposition. Edgware Road looks a danger with Richard Hughes a good booking. He maintains a consistent standard up to 1m2f and seems sure to deliver another solid account. Certavi didn't do too badly on his handicap bow when fifth of nine behind Conducting at Warwick and is probably the only member of the field open to improvement with just four runs under his belt.
