LEVI DRAPER was having his first run since June when runner-up at Wolverhampton earlier this month. That was a big improvement on last year's efforts and James Fanshawe's charge can get off the mark here. Henry Allingham looks a threat, however, as he wasn't beaten far when fourth at Doncaster on his debut and Poole Harbour's earlier form gives him every chance especially as the soft ground was against him at Goodwood last time. Tharawal and Sequoia are not out of it either and the 160,000gns newcomer Admiralty is worth a second look in the betting.
