EXCAVATOR made a bold attempt from the front on his debut at Bath, but found one too good in B Fifty Two. He'll have benefited for the experience and can go one better here at the chief expense of Lupo D'Oro. The latter wasn't disgraced on his debut at Haydock and makes more appeal than the Richard Hannon debutant Netley Marsh. Connections paid 50,000 pounds for newcomer Mitie Mouse in March and he should be noted, while the remaining pair look to have a bit to find.
