Sizing Chile cost 85,000 euros as a three-year-old and is obviously one to keep an eye on from the champion trainer's yard. Emperor Of Exmoor did well to finish runner-up to Tangled Web here last month and will have come on for the run but Tony Martin won this last year and can repeat the process with BLACKMAIL. A winning point-to-pointer, he's looked in need of a stiffer test of stamina on both starts to date and hopefully Robbie McNamara will ensure a strong gallop. Benemeade, who is related to several winners, could prove best of the remainder.
