It's difficult to have much faith in any of this bunch. Blinkers replace a visor on Kempton winner ROYAL ETIQUETTE and that may do the trick along with the drop in class. The Mongoose recorded his only win so far over 7f but Gunner Will has yet to win over any trip. On The Cusp returns from an absence and is better on Fibresand while Yourinthewill and Five Hearts arrive out of sorts. Electrician reverted to type last time after a victory over C&D and was engaged to run here yesterday.
