Colin Tizzard's chasers are often worth a second look here but Wosayu doesn't have a lot to recommend him. MASTER FLIGHT has only had three career starts but his neck second to Midnight Charmer in December suggests he's a good deal better than these and he should belatedly get off the mark if fully wound-up. West Bay Hoolie has his sights lowered and could be the pick of the remainder, though Solitary Palm had Wosayu and Spirit Of Lake behind when fourth at Taunton.
