Mark Johnston's blistering start to 2011 shows no sign of abating and Memorabilia will be fancied to continue the run. The son of Dansili had Urban Kode in second and Imaginary World fourth when scoring over the C&D early this month and followed up from a 4lb higher mark at Lingfield. He can confirm the form with those behind on slightly worse terms but may not cope with SIR RANDOLF. Sylvester Kirk's colt has progressed with each run and his close second to Aquilifer at Lingfield last time was given a boost when the winner scored again on Friday.
