CONVERSATIONAL went close to opening her account when runner-up at Bellewstown in August. She's since joined Mick Channon and can go one better favoured at the weights on today's terms. Cash Is King has a bit to find with the selection on official ratings as he drops back in distance, though Nifty Kier is open to further improvement after a close-up fourth at Lingfield. The remainder are facing even tougher tasks on what little they've shown to date.
