AZMAAM could only stay on at the one pace when runner-up over a mile at Haydock last time so the return to 7f should suit and he can open his account in this company. Fast Charlie improved to take third at Beverley when clear of the rest. He can also figure while Best Dressed has a shout on his debut effort at Doncaster, though he was a big disappointment at Pontefract last time. Le Rouquin and Rocky Desert are likely improvers with Gabrial The Viking preferred of the newcomers.
