Etania has shown some ability and Pollystone was second at Hereford in August, though that form may not amount to much. FORTYSCORE is turned out again quickly after a modest effort at Warwick last week. That was a much better contest than this and he could easily get off the mark here if fulfilling the earlier promise of his third at Ludlow. Alphabetical Order wasn't beaten far at Fontwell in October last year and rates the danger ahead of ex-pointer Monte Kaolino and Uttoxeter fourth Westerly Breeze.
