Sherston improved to finish third at Leicester on his latest start but has only raced over 7f so far. GAMGOOM has been placed over today's trip on his last couple of outings and Harry's Dunlop's colt is just preferred on his latest second at Wolverhampton. Lacock and Exceeding Power are others likely to improve and make more appeal than Tancred while Kaheyll is a newcomer to keep an eye on in the betting.
