There was plenty of confidence behind KINGS GREY on his chasing debut at Haydock but he never got into the argument after making a couple of early mistakes. Keith Reveley's seven-year-old will know more today and is taken to improve past some disappointing sorts. Diamond Frontier was pulled up at Aintree in June and his first start today for John Wade, while April's Hexham winner Mister Wall Street may be best watched with his stable yet to hit any kind of form. Restoration has two ways of running but the handicapper has given a chance to Pamak D'Airy who is only a pound higher than when successful at Wetherby in February, though subsequent efforts have been modest.
