Wolf Sword looks likely to make a bold bid on the evidence of a debut fourth at Haydock. Conjola can also be given a chance on her placed effort Wetherby where she finished well clear of Silver Storm. But RIDE THE RANGE finished fifth over track and trip on his racecourse debut and Chris Grant's charge gets the nod to come out best in what looks an open contest. Varene De Vauzelle will have come on for a recent outing at Musselburgh and can figure if reproducing one of his earlier placed efforts in France.
