Windforpower keeps finding a bit more though all his wins have been over the minimum trip including last week's victory here. SAND BOY makes more appeal as he won his maiden with plenty to spare over track and trip last month and there looks lots more to come from Charlie Hills' colt. Studfarmer made a winning debut at Bath last May and may have improved since while Echo Brava is another with scope for improvement on his handicap bow. Both Miako and Katy Spirit went close on their latest starts but are upped a grade for this.
