Wither Yenot has been narrowly beaten in three starts between the flags and failed to finish the remaining three. His stable won this last year but it's difficult to see him beating BABY GREY, who showed potential in two bumpers before landing two point-to-points. Neither of Shark Hanlon's pair, Sparkling Wine or the four-year-old Gary, have shown any ability to date.
