The filly Lazeez has a nice pedigree and should do better this year while Aurens made a promising start when only finding Pearl Rebel too good over this trip at Kempton in December. But this may chiefly concern newcomers Pashan Garh and VALBCHEK with Johnny Murtagh's presence on board the latter an indication that he's ready to run. A 110,000gns yearling, Jeremy Noseda's colt has a dirt pedigree and should take all the beating.
