There was a lot to like about RIO MILAN's debut third over 2m5f here last month. The extra yardage will suit and he could be the value getting 7lb from Milan Bound, who made a winning start for the Jonjo O'Neill camp at Carlisle but faces a stiffer task here. Squeeze Me won a bumper in July but has her stamina to prove over this trip while Flintham didn't appear to get home over 2m6f at Stratford.
