Norville enjoyed a superb time on the Polytrack throughout the winter but it remains to be seen if he's capable of replicating that improvement on turf. He'll obviously go close if doing so but a watching brief is advised on this occasion. SILVER WIND was also busy during the winter but showed himself equally at home on the grass when scoring at Warwick recently and is clearly in good heart at present - he can follow up in a tricky contest. Rum King has probably not lived up to expectations for the Hannon team but didn't do too badly last time and is potentially dangerous off this mark, while course winner Flowing Cape has to be of interest back in his right grade after an abortive attempt in Listed company last time.
