Keep an eye on the unexposed types seems the best advice here - Snow Trooper showed more last time but Dean Ivory's record with juveniles here tempers enthusiasm, Shutterbug was tailed off at Leicester but is in the right hands to find the required improvement, Century Dancer showed more but in a seller while Les Landes represents an in-form yard. That said, deciphering which of these will find the sudden leap forward is akin to a thankless task, so we'll side with the slightly more concrete base of AJAAFA. Michael Attwater's recent recruit looked a shade unfortunate on his debut for the yard at Kempton, running on having met interference, and the winner of that race was just denied at Southwell last week. He's well-treated on his earlier form and looks worth another try at the trip, so gets the vote over Microlight, who ran well last time but the drop in distance and different surface rate questionmarks.
