MINELLA THEATRE is given the vote to break his maiden tag with both The Hollinwell and Traffic Control worth noting. The selection caught the eye when finishing a decent second at Doncaster last time out. He was good enough to win a bumper over in Ireland on his debut but has taken time to mature since joining the Knight stable. With further improvement still to come and with AP McCoy booked to ride he is sure to be on many punters short list. The Hollinwell ran a personal best when second in a similar race at Doncaster last time out. Once again he looks like he is improving with experience so any market moves should be noted. Traffic Control won a point to point last year and was not discredited at Newbury last time out when finishing in mid division. With the stable hitting form of late he has each way claims, however for the winner we return to Minella Theatre.
