Kevin Ryan's newcomer Bapak Sayang may turn out to be useful and all those that have had a run are entitled to improve for the experience, though Titled Gent was a big disappointment when well backed at Ffos Las and has a long way to go to justify some fancy entries. Inherited has only had four days to recover from a ponderous start at Southwell so the vote goes to EXCUSE TO LINGER, who led for a long way before tiring at Ascot last month and should enjoy this easier track.
