The market should be closely monitored for clues here with two thirds of the field seeing a racecourse for the first time. Willpower is a rare runner under NH Rules for Mark Johnston and was second on his debut at Wetherby. Ralph Beckett, another Flat trainer, runs Stereotypical while there should be more to come from the well-connected Wetherby third Zayfire Aramis. Simply A Legend also catches the eye on breeding while Ifits A Fiddle won at Wetherby in January and Seedling was successful at Lingfield before coming unstuck here three weeks ago. ACT ALONE is a half-brother to three winners on the Flat so shouldn't be lacking in pace. Barry Geraghty has stayed back to take the ride and the hint should be taken.
