SHADOWS LENGTHEN hadn't been running well before bouncing back at Doncaster where he was always travelling well. In that kind of form he'll take some stopping here. Gansey ran a fine race here in December and has found the going too testing in his subsequent starts so Sue Smith's veteran is one to keep on the right side. Ros Castle is consistent enough but probably needs more testing conditions and the once-promising Tiptoeaway could just need this, only his second start since October 2012. Noble Legend isn't the most consistent of performers but is well up to this if at his best and has a victory over the course and distance to his credit.
