Yarroom won a couple of races on the Polytrack last season and should be winning on this surface before long. FEHAYDI sports his owners second colours but finished a creditable fifth behind the much higher rated Windhoek in a valuable race at Newmarket last week. He looks to have strong claims in this company and gets the vote. Top Notch Tonto would prefer a slower surface and Flashlight is unproven over mile. Market Town has to prove he's up to racing in this grade having won a maiden at Lingfield on his reappearance, although Haafaguinea wasn't beaten far in a decent race at Doncaster in September and can figure. Red Avenger ended last season with victory in a Newmarket nursery and is another to consider with Richard Hughes on board for his return to action.
