Haggas and Moore is a potent combination and Heartbreak Hero should give a good account for them here. Sent off favourite when last on debut, the Exceed And Excel colt was much more like it last time when a Yarmouth runner-up, although proving no match for the impressive Belardo. He sets the standard but is far from bombproof and we'll take a chance with ABLE MATE. The Clive Cox string has been in fine form of late and his Shamardal colt showed plenty of toe on his Goodwood debut before fading from two out. He'll be more streetwise here and is an each-way option at least against the likely favourite. Roger Charlton launches a pair of interesting newcomers in Accra Beach and Skate, preferred in that order, whilst any juveniles representing Richard Hannon at Windsor need to be considered which brings Classic Seniority and Crafty Choice into the equation.
