Twin Bud was third at Plumpton last month but seems to need a stiffer test of stamina than this nowadays. Lady From Geneva has disappointed at Exeter since finishing second at Huntingdon but Master Cardor Visa is knocking on the door and should be winning soon while it's too soon to write off Spanish Fork. Amirico might enjoy a return to hurdling but PSI is 13lb lower than when only beaten a length by Lieutenant Miller here a year ago and, though below that form since, must have a great chance of ending his barren spell.
