A surprisingly low turnout given the prize money and MASTER OF FINANCE might just be able to steal this under an enterprising ride. Joe Fanning did exactly that at Musselburgh earlier in the month and, though others have far stronger profiles, Mark Johnston's charge receives plenty of weight. Cannock Chase confirmed the positive impression of his debut at Kempton to score on reappearance at Windsor and he can go on to better things in time. Windshear and Collaboration fought out a thriller over 1m2f at Sandown last month and Andrew Balding's charge gets the chance to reverse that form at significantly better terms. Satellite took time to get going at Ripon but he broke his maiden in the style of a horse that will have learned plenty.
