Ex-pointers Champagne At Tara and Glowinginthedark are both worth monitoring for market interest in this. Another Brandy showed promise on his debut under Rules at Fontwell in May while Fourth Act started favourite at Wincanton in March. He got hampered on a couple of occasions that day but wasn't beaten far and clearly has ability. August Hill will surely find a race before long and Hazel Brook was awarded a contest at Fontwell last month, though that means she now has a penalty to carry. ASSAM BLACK wasn't given a hard time on his debut at Wincanton in April but stayed on nicely in the closing stages - he can repay that kindness here.
