Kevin Ryan looks to have found a good opportunity for MORNING POST. The latter never looked like catching the winner on his debut over 5f but that was in a much better maiden than this at York and he can open his account. Neither Overstep nor Crazy Dancer have shown anything so far so the newcomer Woodbridge looks a bigger threat as he's a half-brother to six winners and makes more appeal than Black Treacle.
