Despite disappointing when last seen at Leicester in July, it's still a surprise to see CREEK FALCON turning up in a seller. He won over a mile on the Polytrack at Dundalk last year and has landed handicaps at Doncaster and Leicester this season. If anywhere near his best, David O'Meara's charge looks in a different league to these. Ajeeb has a course win to his name but appears to have lost the plot while Conducting's best form is over further. Honey Of A Kitten could have each-way claims on his form earlier this year but The Guru Of Gloom needs to improved again on his second at Lingfield and Fluctuation is better on the Fibresand.
