Abseil finished a creditable third on his belated debut at Kempton. He looks sure to improve on that but has to give plenty of weight to the younger horses at this time of year and TWIN POINT can take advantage. The latter will appreciate the return to a mile after finishing second over 7f at Lingfield and gets the nod to open his account. Joys Of Spring and Daydreamer are likely improvers, as is Putra Eton, though the latter missed the whole of last year. Fresh Kingdom and Halation are both related to winners and are newcomers to note.
