It would be no surprise to see Surf And Turf run well following a break while Lemon's Gent had shown promise prior to winning at Uttoxeter earlier this month. There should be more to come from Paul Webber's charge though he is upped in grade here and 8lb higher in the weights. The form of HENRY SAN's last two runs at Wincanton looks solid and he'll strip fitter for the second of those. Still fairly treated, the top weight should take all the beating as none of the others have shown much lately and Papradon might need this.
