Pyjama Game appears an out-and-out stayer and, though he'll be happier back over fences, could find this too sharp. Duneen Point must go on the short-list after only finding Atlanta Falcon too good on his chasing bow at Uttoxeter but Attycran certainly wouldn't be winning out of turn after three seconds, though is still creeping up the weights. SHOOTING TIMES gets his ground again and has already won over course and distance this season. He may be worth another chance after failing to stay over 3m2f at Kelso last time.
