OUTLAWED was sent off favourite on his return to action at Haydock but came up short. Dropping back to 7f with that run under his belt, Ed Walker's colt gets the nod with improvement expected. Debit and the returning Fyrecracker showed some ability on their respective debuts but Dark Reality looks a bigger threat on her fourth at Newmarket in October. Certificate is no doubt capable of better but will need a big improvement from November's modest debut outing if he's to figure.
