BEAUCHAMP VICEROY makes most appeal in a competitive contest on the pick of his form. The best is his third in a Listed event over C&D back in November when caught close home by the dead-heaters Riggins and Fanunalter. This looks slightly easier and Gerard Butler's can return to winning ways. Lowther has every chance judged on his close-up second to Final Drive last month and Brave Echo is another to consider having made all over 7f at Lingfield on his latest start. Greyfriarschorista has done all his winning on Polytrack and is not easily dismissed on his return to action.
