Several of these enter the fray in good shape including Pivotman, a winner over 1m2f at Pontefract before narrowly beaten over the same trip at Beverley. Tectonic didn't start racing this year until May but he's been making up for lost time and has been very consistent though he's now on his highest ever mark. RALPHY BOY has really found his form, following his victory at Musselburgh with three narrow defeats. He could just be good enough in a tough event Lord Franklin had Tectonic a head behind over this track and trip in June and is better off at the weights so looks a big threat to all.
