Mountain Retreat, a son of Sadler's Wells, is a half-brother to champion hurdler Sublimity and out of a mare who won over 6f so he should have enough pace for this. Tommy Stack runs both Ascende and PIVOTAL ROCK with preference for the latter, an expensive half-brother to several winners on the Flat. Canadian Diamond is related to numerous winners and out of a mare who won over 1m2f in France while Cash And Go is a half-brother to the useful Catch Me, a winner on the Flat and over jumps. The pair with experience have shown nothing.
