A winner on the Flat in Germany for Peter Schiergen, TEMPURAN has been mostly hurdling since joining David Bridgewater. Still lightly-raced, he gets a speculative vote back on the level. Ocean Applause finished ahead of Copperwood and Honey Of A Kitten when landing a seller here during the week but has something to prove over this longer trip. Exclusive Waters may well reverse earlier running with the former as Gary Moore's charge scored over 1m2f at Kempton in September. Doubts also surround Gabrial The Boss over today's distance but Paddy's Saltantes was placed over track and trip recently and may figure.
