Tones made all on his handicap debut over 7f at Wolverhampton last time but the front-runner looks vulnerable over this longer trip and could set the race up for stablemate EMMUSKA. She stayed on strongly to score over C&D recently and Kieran O'Neill's claim cancels out a 3lb rise. Ocean Tempest will also benefit from a strong pace as he won his maiden over a mile at Kempton recently and has a leading chance on his handicap debut, but Singalat has failed to build on July's 6f maiden victory at Redcar. Masters Club and Abshir Zain have plenty to find in this company.
