HIGH NET WORTH went close in both starts last month, beating the re-opposing Barbados Bob and Lake City in the process. Gordon Elliott's charge is the one to beat on that form. Cottrell has bits of form over shorter trips while Lean And Keen ran well at Roscommon on his debut before disappointing at the Curragh. Pastiches and Mischief N Mayhem have had plenty of chances but there may be more to come from Edge Of Sanity on only his second outing of the year.
