E Street Boy rattled up a four-timer last season and doesn't look badly treated back over the smaller obstacles having only contested chases this term. He makes more appeal than David Pipe's other runner, Laflammedeglorie. Union Saint and Call Me Sir could figure if putting recent mishaps behind them but Franklino has been a disappointment this term. Irish import Earth Tremor should go well having failed to take to fences last time but ADMIRAL BOOM is more interesting. Paul Henderson's charge was a fair fourth on his handicap debut over course and distance last month and, with further improvement likely, gets the nod off a low weight.
