HENRYVILLE never threatened the progressive Puffin Billy in an Ascot bumper on his debut but just lost out for second and the form looks strong enough. He's preferred to Golanova, a decent fourth at Sandown on his introduction. Foxcub and Amalric showed promise on their debuts only to disappoint on their latest outings while Pryde Rock was beaten a long way when sent off favourite for his debut at Market Rasen in May. The latter's yard remains in fine form and also runs newcomer Tradewinds and Mick Channon's debutant Warden Hill is another to note for any support in the betting.
