Love Tale faces different conditions having won a nursery over 7f at Leicester on fast ground last month and First Phase makes more appeal after her handicap win in heavy going at Ayr. True Bond disappointed after winning a maiden at Beverley in August, but Claretintheblood showed a bit more when third on the Polytrack last time. Warwick maiden winner Wordismybond can figure on his handicap debut, but MASTER BOND makes more appeal as he beat a subsequent winner when scoring at Redcar last month and can follow up on his first start in a nursery. Generalyse could prove best of the rest.
