Last Shot was just touched off by an in-form rival at Fontwell on Saturday and has won here in the past. Zarzal also likes it here while Oyster Shell won over course and distance in November but hasn't been seen since and Parsnip Pete also returns from a short break, though was taking on better opposition in the autumn. SONOFAGUN is upped in grade and carries a penalty for his victory at Stratford 10 days ago but could hardly have been more impressive and still has a bit of scope. He only gets a tentative vote, however, as Changing The Guard and Highway Code are others who would go close if back to their best.
