Azure Fly would have been a very easy winner at Southwell last time had he not veered violently left after jumping the final flight and dumped Noel Fehily on the side of the track. It's not the first time he's shown wayward tendencies and, though possessing plenty of ability, may be one to be wary of now. Incendo won four times on the Flat over 1m4f and was third here last month on only his second start over timber. He should be thereabouts again while Special Mix won over 1m2f at Pontefract in May. But ITTIRAD is the most interesting of the Flat recruits having ended up with a rating of 90 when with Roger Varian last year. He has an absence to overcome but could outclass these if his jumping holds up.
