Handsome Buddy looks a thorough stayer and needs to bounce back from a fall at Stratford, though blinkers could sharpen his ideas up a little. Hero's Call was second at Uttoxeter back in December while Typhon De Guye is interesting on his chasing debut as his yard is in decent form. ENDOFDISCUSION isn't very consistent but has gone close twice here over 2m4f and is due a good run. He could just be good enough if a break has rekindled his enthusiasm.
