There's not a great deal between these on today's terms and only a tentative vote goes the way of TYRUR TED. He scored under today's apprentice at Nottingham in May and is dropped in class for this. Royal Sea is another who should find life easier in this grade while Lacey has enough scope to improve further and get involved. Daniel Thomas does most of his winning at this level while course and distance winners Cadgers Brig and Excellent News have the past form to figure.
