Richard Hannon tries RONALDINHO in first-time blinkers and he's dropped to such a lowly rating that they could encourage a return to winning form, especially as he will love the conditions. Munhamer was a disappointing favourite on his handicap debut at Sandown while Lady Lunchalot is a selling plater at best and has never run on soft going. Pearl Street is another untested on the ground and Echo Brava's only run on soft going produced one of his worst performances.
