YPRES has won twice over the minimum trip including at Ripon on his latest start. But he's gone very close over 6f on more than one occasion and is taken to follow-up with more to come from him this year. Generalyse needs to dig a bit deeper off his current mark but Clubland is not easily dismissed having failed to see out the 7f at Beverley last time. Feel The Heat and Uprise posted better efforts in a similar grade on their latest starts and are others to consider ahead of Divertimenti who steps up in class today.
