A small but select field for the feature and PROFESSOR should have all the answers. Richard Hannon's colt has proved frustrating for his backers though he showed he retains ability when second in the Wokingham and he will not be fazed by the prospect of quick ground. Rerouted makes a return to Britain having previously campaigned under the tutelage of the Hills family. He's gone on to race regularly in the Dubai Carnival for current connections but may need this first run for six months. Trade Storm is also a big player on official ratings and he also has to overcome a long absence. Morache Music is at his best with plenty of give underfoot while Dutch Rose and Diescentric try to make the leap from handicaps. Winning Express attempts to add to a Listed success against her own sex.
