HE'S SO COOL never recovered from a slow start in the Lily Agnes at Chester last time and did well to finish as close as he did. He'd made all to win the Brocklesby at Beverley before that and will take the beating if making a clean break from the stalls today. Forevertheoptimist beat a subsequent winner at Doncaster last month and looks a real threat, while Factory Time won at Bath on his debut and there should be more to come from him. Priestley's Reward and Travis County face a tough task making their debuts in this company and may be best watched.
