Shearian has run only twice in 14 starts on Turf and is better known for his exploits on the all-weather but Tony Carroll wouldn't send him on this long journey without good reason. Availed Speaker has been beaten in sellers recently and Idyllic Star was only third on her final start of last season at this level. MISS ELLA JADE gained her only success so far in a seller at Pontefract in July but Richard Whitaker knows how to get one ready and his filly may be good enough in a poor contest. Bix makes a quick reappearance after being well beaten in a four-runner race at Catterick on Wednesday when he was a 100/1 chance.
