FEARLESS POET won a nursery over C&D last December and will have come on for his first run of the year at Wolverhampton a fortnight ago. He showed up well to finish third on that occasion and can return to winning ways with improvement expected. Spacecraft was placed twice over 7f here in August and should be thereabouts again, while Raghdaan and Scruffy Skip produced better efforts last time, though they're still hard to fancy. Minortransgression has the past form to figure.
