Tealissio won comfortably over the C&D before appearing to find testing conditions and an extra quarter-mile beyond him at Folkestone. He should get into the mix though has to concede weight all round and PINE CREEK, who was in front of him at Folkestone, looks the one to be on. John Ferguson's charge, a winner on the Flat at Longchamp, showed real potential on his debut and could just prove too good for winning bumper Irish Buccaneer, who will be better for his opening run over timber at Exeter and has plenty of scope. I'm A College Boy has shown some promise in bumpers and looks best of the remainder.
