Janaab, Frontline Phantom and Suni Dancer have all been placed over shorter trips of late. Tim Easterby's charge makes most appeal of that trio off his current mark. Qibtee moves in the opposite direction after going close over 1m4f at Pontefract but REX WHISTLER has the more obvious claims. He finished only a head behind Evervescent over track and trip last month and can go one better with Conor Beasley's allowance further helping his cause.
