It's interesting to see the three-year-old Bathwick Scanno fast-tracked into handicap company after just three starts - this longer trip could suit. Stablemate Ladyvie has struggled to make an impact since arriving from France, however, while No Woman No Cry was found wanting off his new mark at Newton Abbot last time. O'Callaghan Strand may also be in the handicapper's grip and the assessor has taken no chances with prolific pointer Saint Peray. FRESHER FISHING returns from a break but looked a reformed character over 3m here in April. He could take all the beating again if the blinkers work a second time and is preferred to recent Newton Abbot winner Southway Star.
