Jeremy Noseda looks to have found an obvious opportunity for LIVERY to get off the mark. The colt is a half-brother to a dual winner over 1m2f, and he certainly wasn't stopping when he made his debut over that trip on at Sandown in June. Richard Ford often has winners at this track so Humungosaur has to be respected. The gelding was tried at Listed level when trained by Paul Cole last year but he makes a debut for the Garstang handler having failed to show anything for Richard Hannon earlier this season. Gulf Storm and Gabrial's Hope haven't done enough to suggest that they are up to winning this and they look to be fighting out third prize at best.
