MUMFORD looks the best of those with experience and gets a tentative vote to get off the mark at the third time of asking as he looked ready for a step up in trip when second at Haydock. Fingal's Cave and Aussie Ruler have also shown promise but there are a host of newcomers worth a market check. They include Toast Of Newbury, who is a half-brother to a couple of winners and from a stable in terrific form. Atletico, Oriental Splendour and the selection's stablemate Classic Seniority could also figure.
