Outlaw Torn popped-up over C&D last time and could be in the mix again off a 5lb higher mark while Waspy has been in fine form on the Turf and should be thereabouts. Geeaitch has claims on his second at Kempton but this is tougher than the seller Boonga Roogeta landed at Leicester recently. GLEN ELLYN never looked like winning in three starts last year but this longer trip should suit on his return and the half-brother to a winner on the all-weather gets a tentative vote on his handicap debut.
