A modest contest with little to stir the blood but whilst KALAHARI KINGDOM comes with his limitations he is at least consistent and didn't run at all badly behind Baltic Brave at Yarmouth recently and, down to a mark of 57, could just about be good enough. Green Zone and Rockie Road both filled the runner-up spot in similarly ordinary contests last time and must be respected but larger threats may well emerge from less exposed sorts with the opportunity to improve as they go handicapping, Victory Danz, Navajo Dream and Urban Sanctuary all fit the bill in that respect and the market is likely to notify the strength behind their respective chances.
