Resuscitator should have come on for a recent pipe-opener at Lingfield and will go close if back to his best but the same comment applies to BUAITEOIR. He's the highest rated in the field on official figures and is just preferred to Encompassing, also likely to improve for his first run of the season at Windsor last week. Aragorn Rouge won twice at Dundalk earlier this year but has yet to show the same level of form for new connections but Nant Saeson is dropped in class and makes most appeal of the remainder.
