Latest Trend's last two runs in Ireland were decent and there should be more to come now he's joined Tim Vaughan. Persian Herald has been placed in all three starts over timber, though whether he's actually improving is open to debate so we'll take him on with PEARLS LEGEND. John Spearing's charge has already run well twice here and was beaten less than four lengths by Martial Law over 2m4f last time when Seven Irons Sid was behind. If anything, this is less competitive. Royal Peak and Midnight Myth are among those open to improvement but both may need more time.
