Raven's Tower has only found one too good in a couple of juvenile hurdles so far but he's never raced on ground this soft and three-year-olds have a poor record against older horses this early in the season. Border Station did win on good to soft going at Fontwell in June but usually needs a run to blow away the cobwebs and Just Beware is starting to look a light of former days. It's a long time since DELPHI MOUNTAIN was in the winner's enclosure but he's well handicapped nowadays so we'll take a chance on Richard Woollacott's Irish import in what looks a particularly weak affair.
