Richard Hannon has won this three times in the last six years with high-class miler Dick Turpin successful in 2009. REDACT may not be in that league, but he won his maiden with the minimum of fuss and boasts an entry in Redcar's Two-Year-old Trophy. He'll take all the beating here, though recent Windsor winner Son Du Silence will be no pushover. Basantee has gone close on turf since winning at Southwell and Loxton Lad could prove the best of the two newcomers.
