Plenty of guesswork needed as to which one of these will return to form and only a tentative vote goes to DIAMOND FRONTIER. He finally managed to complete a round when fourth at Wetherby last time and is now back on a winning mark. Kudu Country has struggled since landing a novice chase at Southwell early in the year while Pret A Thou and Doctor David have shown little since returning to action. Desert Cry has been given a chance by the handicapper if he's back to his best, however, and Andreo Bambaleo has a shout if fully tuned-up on his first start since July.
