SO BELOVED didn't have a hard race when opening his account at Salisbury three weeks ago. The runner-up has since franked the form and Roger Charlton's half-bother to Group 2 winner Deportivo is fancied to come out best as he steps up in class. There's little between Hoarding and Rhamnus at the weights though the former looks to have the stronger form in decent handicaps while Ocean Applause has the past form to figure but was below par in both starts last month. Master Ming was an easy winner at Thirsk last time but will need to improve again on today's terms.
