A few of these are looking to step up on recent placed efforts including Wordiness. He was beaten a couple of lengths when runner-up at Kempton last time while Ashkalara finished only a length behind the winner at the same track in October. Annelko went the closest on his latest start when caught close home by Kames Park but a chance is taken on TORERO. Kevin Ryan's charge has yet to win but has been placed off higher marks on Turf and only faded inside the final furlong on his return from seven months off the track last week.
