Buccaneer Bob was collared on the post over the course and distance earlier this month while Silverlord couldn't quite get to Shuhov at the same fixture. Both have enough weight while Noah Webster doesn't have much in the way of pace and was sent over two miles here last time. Armed Guard would be a threat if ready after a break as he was progressing along the right lines when last seen in the autumn. HURRICANE SEASON returned from a spell of hurdling to produce by far his best effort to date behind Shabra Emperor last time and looks on a low enough mark to lose his maiden tag and start climbing the ratings.
