Forget Me Not Lane is likely to be well supported on the back of a much-improved effort behind President Lincoln at Musselburgh, now stepping into handicap company for the first time for the in-form Ryan team. However, preference is for DADDY WARBUCKS, twice a winner from seven runs and rather unlucky behind Joshua The First in a much better contest at Musselburgh last time. He sets a decent standard and this looks a slightly easier contest. Double Cee shaped with some promise on reappearance and inhabits a fair handicap mark, whilst Brockwell and My Guardian Angel have both signalled that improved performances can be anticipated this season.
