The well-bred Loving Home will improve on his third at Newmarket in November and should win races this year. Late Night Mark was only beaten a head over this trip at Lingfield in February and Mr Greenspan was third at Kempton last month. Damascene showed promise on the Polytrack over the winter but could have stamina limitations over the distance. CANNOCK CHASE was slowly away and ran green over 7f on his debut in the autumn but should be much more effective now upped in trip and is preferred to stablemate Good Value. The market will be an indicator as to the chances of newcomers Fastnet Red and Nam Hal.
