SPICULAS looks the one to beat in this on his latest third over a longer trip at Haydock and James Reveley prefers him to stablemate Teescomponent Max. Mister Spingsprong makes his debut under Rules but has been placed three times between the flags. This trip may be a bit short however. Another ex-pointer, Man In Black, has plenty of scope but Whisky Chaser will need to improve to open his account. Be A Dreamer is also proving hard to place.
