This extended trip might suit some of these more than others. BENHEIR has won over these fences and, though well beaten back under Rules at Fakenham last month, looks to have a decent opportunity to open his account for new connections here. Double Dizzy is in the veteran stage now but still capable of running well and he has an abundance of stamina while Theophrastus could figure if on a going day. Start Royal makes more appeal than Kornati Kid and Masked Man but will have his stamina tested in the closing stages.
