WANNABE YOUR MAN got off the mark when stepped up to 1m6f at Nottingham. Roger Varian's charge doesn't look the most straightforward with his high head carriage but is taken to defy a 4lb rise in this modest company. Both My Destination and Ivanhoe were placed on their latest starts but neither got anywhere near the winner and Kenny's Girl makes more appeal on her recent fourth at Nottingham behind Hassle. Kashgar won off a similar mark at Chester last season but arrives badly out of form.
