Lord Lescribaa won off an 8lb higher mark over course and distance on fast ground last summer but recent efforts have left a lot to be desired. Going and trip are a worry for Crannaghmore Boy while Mr Valentino is best watched at present and Kirbys Glen remains out of sorts. GEORGIAN KING has been knocking on the door lately and has been dropped a pound since his latest second at Uttoxeter- he is surely the one to beat.
