Third Of The Third won by five lengths at Hereford on his racecourse debut while Bowie and Great Roar have shown signs of ability. The Halling gelding Zarafshan is a very interesting newcomer from the John Ferguson yard and he makes more appeal than Towcester third Claiming Benefits. But we'll concentrate on previous winners King Of The Wolds and SPIRIT OF SHANKLY with preference for Charlie Longsdon's four-year-old who was impressive at Stratford in March after a promising debut at Kempton and should have strengthened up further over the summer.
